Southern Power to add battery energy storage resources to two California solar projects

By Staff Writer

Southern Power, a leading US wholesale energy provider and subsidiary of Southern Company, has been awarded two 20-year power purchase agreements by Southern California Edison (SCE).

The company is adding battery-based energy storage resources at both Southern Power's Tranquility Solar Facility and Garland Solar Facility in California.

The battery-based energy storage additions will enhance California's grid reliability by providing SCE and the California ISO (CAISO) with further reliable resource capacity that will help in implementing renewable energy into the grid.
