The Alamitos project will replace an existing gas peaker plant with 100MW/400MWh storage plant. As well as fulfilling peaker duties, the storage system will also be used to provide greater grid reliability and renewable power integration. It is scheduled to be operational on 1 January, 2021. The project has been in development as part of a $2 billion repowering project in Long Beach, CA to replace aging natural gas peakers with a combination of more modern/efficient combined-cycle gas capacity and the world’s largest battery energy storage facility. The 100 MW system will provide critical capacity to meet local reliability needs in the area, while helping California meet its environmental goals.
