Document Description
The Project would involve the construction and operation of a 400-megawatt battery energy storage system to provide reliable and flexible power to the local electrical system. The Project would interconnect at the Tesla Substation immediately adjacent to the site in Alameda County via a 230-kilovolt interconnection generation tie (gen-tie) line. The energy storage facility is anticipated to house lithium-ion batteries totaling 400 megawatts of energy (see Figure 2, Site Plan). Project construction would be in 2024 and is anticipated to come online in 2025 or later. The Project would contain pad-mounted energy storage units, in addition to inverters, supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) equipment, a collector substation, and an interconnection gen-tie line to the Tesla Substation. The Project would also include related and supporting facilities such as on-site service roads, gates and security fencing, and temporary laydown and construction areas. Construction is expected to begin as early as 2024 and be completed in approximately 12 months.
