Document Description
The NRG Ellwood Battery Storage Project would include installation of one modular battery storage system with a capacity of 500 kw on the existing EGS site in western Goleta, CA. The project would connect with an existing SCE 16-kV distribution line, which connects to SCE's Isla Vista Substation to the south. No new above ground electrical transmission or distribution lines would be required. The required distribution voltage cable would run below grad through an existing underground conduit and would terminate at the base of an existing SCE distribution pole located immediately adjacent to EGS. Battery storage equipment would be blocked from public view by existing perimeter walls and vegetation.
