      California utility testing benefits of residential storage

      [This article provides more detail than the oringinal June 29 news.]

      "The project uses Saft batteries, which are the first Underwriters Labs approved residential lithium batteries.  15 homeowners have batteries in their garages which can power a home for 2-3 hours.   Another 27 homes are sharing three 4-square-foot batteries in common areas in their neighborhood. They provide about triple the capacity of the in-home batteries."
