By Editors of Power Engineering

ZGlobal and GE have marked the completion of a new, 33-MW battery storage system in California.

The system, designed for use by the Imperial Irrigation District, was built 100 miles east of San Diego.

ZGlobal noted in a release the facility will help with grid flexibility and reliability by providing solar ramping, frequency regulation, power balancing and black start capability for an adjacent gas turbine.

“This truly is a game changer for the energy industry,” said Ziad Alaywan P.E., president and CEO of ZGlobal Inc. “As one of the largest battery storage systems in the west, it is a key component in the evolution of the electrical grid in the 21st century. It is exciting to see it come to life here in the Imperial Valley, with IID leading the way.”
