The Juniper Creek Energy Storage Project is a 200-megawatt Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) project located in the City of Rancho Cordova, California, being developed by Vesper Energy, LLC. The Project's batteries will be installed in racks, inverters, medium-voltage transformers, a collector substation, and other associated equipment to interconnect with the existing and adjacent Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD) Cordova Substation.
The Project will be operated remotely with no permanent on-site operations and maintenance personnel, and no occupied buildings or habitable structures. It is anticipated that two to four staff members world visit the site weekly or on a as-needed basis for maintenance monitoring. The Project site will be fully enclosed and will not be open to the public.
The Project will operate by directly connecting to the local electrical grid, and release energy produced during low demand times during higher demand times.
