30 MW / 20 MWh IID Battery Energy Storage System
< Back to projects

Client: Imperial Irrigation District
Location: El Centro, California

Following a major system outage and continued growth in oncoming solar generation, IID needed to install a battery energy storage system (BESS) to provide grid flexibility and increase reliability on its system. The BESS, one of the first of its size in North America and the first major storage project for IID, can respond to the variabilities of intermittent resources and provide peak shaving, frequency regulation and power balancing to support IID’s system. After performing critical system studies to help IID select a location and size for the BESS, POWER served as owner’s engineer and construction monitor for the project.
