The proposed Project includes installation and operation of a battery energy storage system and the entitlements required to allow the system to be on-site. The proposed system will receive energy from the existing PG&E utility line and store the energy in battery modules until it is distributed into the existing PG&E Henrietta Substation. Once constructed, the Project will be able to deliver 10 megawatts of power for up to four continuous hours, resulting in a capacity of 40 megawatt-hours of stored energy available for grid services and system reliability. The Project will consist of forty shipping containers containing six energy storage sub models with AC/DC inverters each. Underground low voltage cables will be run to a low profile, padmounted
switchgear and then to a pad-mounted step-up transformer (see Figure 2). The
transformer will be located at the northwest comer of the parcel, where underground 12 kV cables would be routed to banks 3 and 5 of PGE's Henrietta 12 kV substation, less than a mile to the north of the proposed Project site.
