Solar Plant Will Charge Energy Storage Battery for Arizona Utility

A unit of NextEra Energy Resources will build a single-axis tracking, 20-MW solar photovoltaic generation facility at the site and combine it with a 10-MW lithium-ion energy storage system. The solar power plant will be used to charge the battery so it can deliver energy when the sun is not shining. The project is expected to begin operations by the end of 2017. 20 MW is about enough energy to serve 5,000 average residential homes.

Effective battery storage could assist SRP in meeting peak customer demand and will optimize solar energy output in the future if the technology is determined to be efficient and economical.
