VESI 10, LLC, proposes to construct a battery energy storage system
facility consisting of a battery electrical storage system (BESS) that
would store 5 megawatts (MW) or 20 MW hours of electricity for
dispatch into the local Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) grid via the
existing adjacent PG&E Pease Road power substation. The proposed
BESS facility will connect to the adjacent PG&E electric power
distribution line which would both provide energy to recharge the battery
storage system as well as dispatch energy generated by the battery
storage system. The proposed BESS facility will be used to reduce
greenhouse gas emissions associated with gas-fired power generation
facilities by storing energy during off-peak hours (lower energy
usage/demand times) and dispatching this energy on an as-needed
basis during peak demand hours. The BESS facility is responding to
California Public Utilities Commission Resolution E-4909 authorizing
PG&E to procure energy storage to address local deficiencies and
ensure local reliability.
