BATTERY STORAGE FACILITIES

California

A battery storage facility is used to stabilize power grids as it can transition from standby to full power within milliseconds to deal with grid failures. It is the fastest responding dispatchable source of power on grids, and it also enables to address the intermittency problem from clean energy sources like wind and solar farms.

At Omni Design, we help clean energy developers with architecture, site planning and infrastructure design to bring battery storage projects to life in urban areas. 

Some of the projects we have worked on are:  

Goleta Battery Storage Facility

This 60-megawatt energy storage facility features 62 battery “Megapacks” manufactured by Tesla. The facility will provide 87,600 megawatt-hours annually, which is equivalent to the annual energy demand of 13,257 homes in California.

The project site will be landscaped to screen views from the adjacent roadway, an existing brewery that shares the parking lot with the new energy storage facility, and the proposed residential development.

The project´s investment will range between $50 to 60 million, and approved by Goleta´s Planning Commission in 2021.

Saticoy Battery Storage Facility

This 100-megawatt facility is one of the largest grid-scale battery energy storage systems in the United States. It was constructed in Saticoy, California and equipped with 142 Tesla Megapacks that will provide 400 megawatts per hour.

The 100 megawatt/400 megawatt-hour Saticoy battery storage system features 142 Megapacks, Tesla’s utility-scale battery storage product. These utility-scale batteries will charge directly from the electric grid during non-peak hours, in order to deploy them in peak hours to match the energy supply and demand, thus improving the grid´s stability and reliability.
