North American Clean Energy: POWER Receives Awards for Energy Storage, Traffic Projects
January 11, 2018
The American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) of Idaho has selected the Pomona Energy Storage Facility to receive first place for Category K, Energy for the 2017 Engineering Excellence Awards Competition. POWER Engineers Incorporated (POWER) provided detailed design to AltaGas for the project. ARB was the contractor.
AltaGas built, owns and operates the storage project at its Pomona Energy Facility natural-gas fired peaking power plant in the east Los Angeles Basin. The 20 megawatt battery storage facility has a discharge capacity of 80 megawatt-hours. Southern California Edison purchases energy from the project under a 10-year agreement, integrating more renewable energy into its system and helping its customers avoid costly outages. The project went online in December 2016.
