ESA is excited that our Leadership Circle member, Renewable Energy Systems (RES), was selected by San Antonio utility CPS Energy to build and install a $16.3 million solar and energy storage project. The station will be on the Southwest Research Institute’s (SwRI) 1,200-acre campus in San Antonio and is an important step for energy modernization in Texas. The CPS Energy solar and energy storage systems consist of 5 MWAC of distributed solar capacity co-located with a 10 MW/10 MWh Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) controlled by RESolve. This project combines distributed solar generation with strategically sized and configured electrochemical energy storage. In addition, the technologies are interconnected at distribution voltage on a common feeder.
