Canadian Solar Inc. has announced a supply contract and long-term service agreement to deliver and integrate a 75 megawatt/300 megawatt hour lithium-ion battery storage project in California, Kallanish Energy reports.
The agreement on the Mustang solar plant is with Goldman Sachs Renewable Power LLC, part of the Renewable Power Group of Goldman Sachs Asset Management.
The terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
The 75 megawatt or four hour 300 megawatt hour energy storage system is a retrofit addition to the 100 megawatt alternating current Mustang solar plant in Kings County in Calicfornia’s Central Valley.
Construction is set to begin in early 2021 and the facility is expected to be operational by the second half of 2021.
It was originally developed by Canadian Solar subsidiary Recurrent Energy LLC. It was connected to the grid in August 2016 and the project’s equity stake was later sold to Goldman Sachs in May 2019.
Ontario-based Canadian Solar will provide the complete integrated solution including a lithium-ion phosphate-based technology package.
