Recently, members of the Clean Power Alliance (CPA) team visited the nearly completed 100 MW, 400-megawatt hour (MWh) Luna Storage standalone battery storage facility in Lancaster, California. This is CPA’s third standalone storage project, in addition to the Johanna ESS Energy Storage Facility in Santa Ana and the Edwards Sanborn Storage II Facility in Kern County, and will allow CPA to cost-effectively integrate renewable energy resources into the grid 24 hours a day.
Battery storage systems are a key component of CPA’s renewable energy strategy and are a key offering to Los Angeles County and Ventura County customers, as they enable the power grid to match natural changes in the supply and demand of electricity.
Founded in 2017, Clean Power Alliance is the locally operated electricity provider for 30 cities across Los Angeles County and Ventura County, as well as the unincorporated areas of both counties. CPA is the fifth largest electricity provider in California and the single largest provider of 100% renewable energy to customers in the nation, serving approximately three million customers via one million customer accounts, providing clean renewable energy at competitive rates.
