Peninsula signs 45MW Terra-Gen storage deal
Californian community choice aggregation agency Peninsula Clean Energy has reached a 15-year deal for 45MW of battery storage from a four-hour lithium ion battery storage project that Terra-Gen will develop near Barstow in San Bernardino County.
The facility, part of a larger redevelopment of the existing SEGS VIII solar thermal project, is expected to be operational in June 2024.
It is Peninsula Clean Energy’s second stand-alone battery storage project deal signed this year. The agency recently agreed a deal to receive 50 MW of four-hour lithium ion battery storage from the Nova III facility in Riverside County beginning in August 2024.
