The project includes a new 60 mega-watt lithium ion Energy Storage Facility. The applications associated with the proposal include a Tentative Parcel Map, Conditional Use Permit, a Development Plan, and a Development Plan Amendment Proposed Conditional Use Permit and Development Plan for the development and operation of a 60-megawatt lithium-ion battery energy facility containing energy storage cabinets (Megapacks) manufactured by Tesla along with supporting equipment such as transformers, inverters and other electrical distribution equipment. Each megapack has pre-installed energy storage components that are contained in a steel cabinet enclosure. The current design includes the installation of up to 62 Megapacks. The project also includes an on-site electrical substation with a transformer, and the construction of an underground connection (tie line) to the existing SCE Isla Vista substation located west of and adjacent to Storke Road, approximately 300 feet west of the project site.
