NextEra To Build Nearly 700 MWs Of Battery Storage In California; 2,000 MW Battery Storage Pipeline

August 31,2020



NextEra Energy Resources, LLC, today highlighted a suite of clean energy storage developments in California that could nearly double the total installed capacity of battery storage available in the U.S. today.

NextEra said that it plans to build nearly 700 MWs of fully-contracted battery storage projects in California before the end of 2022. The battery storage projects will be co-located at six existing NextEra Energy Resources solar projects and include the previously announced:

• 63 MW at Blythe 110 Solar Energy Center

• 115 MW at Blythe II Solar Energy Center

• 115 MW at Blythe III Solar Energy Center

• 230 MW at the McCoy Solar Energy Center

• 110 MW at the Arlington Solar Energy Center

• 65 MW at the Yellow Pine Solar Energy Center

The 700 MW of battery storage projects represents a capital investment of nearly $800 million. The California Public Utility Commission (CPUC) approved all 523 MW of the projects that required CPUC approval, the company said

"In addition to the fully-contracted projects that are expected to come online by the end of 2022, NextEra Energy Resources has a current pipeline of nearly 2,000 MW of shovel-ready or near shovel-ready battery energy storage projects in California that could be deployed to help meet the energy storage capacity requirements put forth by the CPUC. To put that into perspective, the company's planned and pipeline of battery storage projects in California alone is nearly twice the total installed capacity of battery storage in the U.S. today (approximately 1,350 MWs). The build out of the 2,000 MW energy storage pipeline is contingent on obtaining long-term power purchase agreements for the projects as well as the necessary regulatory approvals," NextEra said

"In addition to battery storage, NextEra Energy Resources stands ready to construct Eagle Mountain, a 1,300 MW pumped storage project located near Desert Center, Calif. Eagle Mountain is a fully permitted, shovel-ready project that could provide up to 18 hours of energy storage and represents a bulk energy storage solution that not only diversifies California storage supply, but provides additional grid flexibility in the event of multi-day events such as summer heat waves and winter storms when cloud cover reduces solar generation. While Eagle Mountain is fully permitted, the potential project needs the appropriate regulatory construct in order to move forward," the company said
