    Solar+Storage Sited at C&I Locations can be the Backbone of the Grid

    A new analysis suggests that 9.2 GW of the California Independent System Operator’s required 47.5 GW of “Resource Adequacy” could be met by customer-sited solar+storage. In total, it would require approximately 48 GWdc of rooftop solar power, and 21 GW / 42 GWh of battery storage, to meet the requirement. The study looked at individual rooftops within the state, in essence building a grid from the rooftop up.
