    1. Los Angeles & 8minute Solar Announce 25-Year PPA At Under 2 Cents Per kWh!

      Los Angeles & 8minute Solar Announce 25-Year PPA At Under 2 Cents Per kWh!

      If approved, Los Angeles will enter into a 25-year power purchase agreement for 400 MW AC/530 MW DC of solar electricity at a price of 1.997 cents per kWh — the lowest price yet for solar power in the US. Adding a 100 MW/200 MWh battery will cost an additional 1.3 cents per kWh. The project includes the option to add 50 MW/200 MWh of energy storage for 0.665 cents per kWh more. The project will be built in two 200 MW AC phases. In the second phase, the size of the battery storage component may double.

    12. Consultants: Faster PV, Storage Roll-Out Possible in Puerto Rico

      Consultants: Faster PV, Storage Roll-Out Possible in Puerto Rico

      Puerto Rico has been urged to embrace PV and energy storage more decisively as it works to rebuild its battered power grid, fortifying it against future storms. Siemens' new advice, submitted to Puerto Rico power regulator PREPA this month, urges the island to roll out 920MW of battery energy storage by 2023. The new figure – revised upwards from the 600-900MW recommended by Siemens in February – would include 400MW of six-hour storage systems and 200MW of two-hour counterparts.

      World's Largest Battery System Planned for Nevada Solar Plant

      Last week, one of the largest solar and battery projects in the world just got one step closer to approval. On Friday the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) released the draft environmental impact statement (EIS) for the colossal Gemini Solar Project, a behemoth planned for 11 square miles of the Nevada desert northeast of Las Vegas. The paperwork shows few exact details of the project, however it notes that there has been an upgrade to the scale of the battery storage component, with a mammoth 531 MW / 2125 megawatt-hour (MWh) battery planned accompany the 690 MWac of solar that will be deployed.

      Solar Customers May Be Required to Store Energy

      The Guam Power Authority is reviewing whether to require energy storage systems for all future solar power customers in light of intermittency, or power fluctuations, within the power grid. "It would be substantially cheaper for the utility to provide (energy storage systems) than for individual customers to install theirs," GPA General Manager John Benavente told The Guam Daily Post.

      NYPA, Westchester County Develop Solar Arrays, Energy Storage

      The New York Power Authority is partnering with Westchester County to develop and implement solar photovoltaic and energy storage systems at seven county-owned properties, including bus garages, the Westchester County Courthouse and Hilltop Hanover Farm. The new systems are expected to offset more than 2,800 tons of greenhouse gases each year, which is equivalent to removing more than 600 cars from the road. The solar projects and renewable energy and financing services for municipalities offered at the forum support Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s Green New Deal, a clean energy and jobs agenda that strives to achieve 100 percent clean electricity by 2040.

      Energy Storage is Critical to Microgrid Development: Microgrid 2019

      Microgrids increasingly depend on solar-plus-storage — or the ability to generate solar power on site and to store excess electrons in batteries that would release that energy when it is needed. Energy storage provides a Swiss army knife of services, from shaving peak load to storing and injecting wind and solar electrons onto the grid. It enhances reliability while also increasing efficiencies and allowing for more green energy on the grid.
