GOLETA BATTERY STORAGE FACILITY

Goleta, 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. 

Goleta’s 60-megawatt battery storage facility features 62 «Megapacks» of batteries made by Tesla. The facility will provide 87,600 megawatt-hours per year, 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.
