Document Description
The project proposes to construct, operate, maintain, and decommission an energy storage facility. The Project’s northern parcel (APN 085-040 058) is subject to Williamson Act Contract No. 2068; contract cancellation is proposed. Project build-out would be phased. At full build-out, the project would have capacity to store up to 3 gigawatts of energy during times of excess generation and dispatch it into the existing electrical grid as needed. The project would consist of batteries using lithium-ion or iron-flow storage technology. The Project would not generate electricity. To interconnect the project with the regional electric transmission system, Key Energy Storage, LLC and PG&E would construct, operate, and maintain a new 2,500-foot-long (up to 0.5-mile) 500-kilovolt transmission line, primarily located on PG&E’s existing Gates Substation property, between the Gates Substation and the project site. This line would be installed on new lattice steel towers, each up to 200 feet tall, which would be spaced at approximately 500-foot intervals. To accommodate the project, PG&E also would modify existing infrastructure at the Gates Substation and at the Midway Substation located approximately 63 miles southeast of the project site in Buttonwillow, Kern County, California.
