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.
