Document Description
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.
