$3.3m Grant For Sodium-Sulfur Battery Storage Smart Grid Project

The California Energy Commission recently added $3.3 million to PG&E’s coffers for a smart grid pilot project incorporating utility-scale sodium-sulfur battery storage.

The Yerba Buena Battery Energy Storage System Pilot Project, as it is called, has a capacity of 4 megawatts, and can currently store energy for more than six hours.

S&C is the contractor and battery supplier for the Yerba Buena Project, while PG&E will install and evaluate the system while working together with the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) to improve the battery system.
