SRP to build massive 250MW/1,000MWh battery storage project in Arizona

first_imgSRP to build massive 250MW/1,000MWh battery storage project in Arizona FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Arizona Republic:Salt River Project will build the biggest battery on the power grid in Arizona as part of its pledge last year to add 1,000 megawatts of solar to its supply by 2025. The big battery project is planned for the Little Rainbow Valley, south of Buckeye, and the battery system there will be many times larger than anything in Arizona today.Utilities are adding batteries to the power grid so that they can charge with abundant solar energy in the day, and discharge that power at night, when customers use a lot of electricity but solar plants don’t create any. SRP said last year it would reduce its reliance on natural-gas-burning power plants and save money by adding solar and batteries to its system.At the time, SRP only had about 200 megawatts of solar, but now the electric utility has lined up projects that get it about 60% of the way toward that 1,000-megawatt goal.The 250-megawatt project will be called Sonoran Energy Center. It will include batteries capable of storing 250 megawatts of energy for four hours, or 1,000 megawatt-hours of electricity storage.The U.S. Energy Information Administration reported that as of March 2019, the two biggest operating battery projects in the country are the 40-megawatt Golden Valley Electric Association’s system in Alaska and the Vista Energy system in California.Batteries give electric companies flexibility in how they deliver the power. For example, the Sonoran Energy Center also could provide 125 megawatts of power for eight hours.More: SRP plans to install Arizona’s biggest battery for massive solar plantlast_img read more

Footballer, beanpole, podcaster, former virgin, is now jockey,”  read the Paddy Power statement.“Yes, you read that right. Here at Paddy Power we’ve only gone and made the lanky b*stard don some silks and throw his leg over a thoroughbred racehorse.”The start of Cheltenham 2020 will see Paddy Power once again turn-up the dial on its marketing coverage. Two weeks ahead of the Festival start, the bookmaker launched its ‘neighbour to neighbour’ UK multi-media advertising campaign which featured Irish actor Colm Meaney who delivered an urgent message to English sports fans. Cheltenham 2020 sees Paddy Power continue its legacy sponsorship of the ‘Prestbury Cup’, the Festival accolade that celebrates the famous and good-natured competition between both nations and is awarded to the country with the most winners at the end of The Festival.
