The 20MW / 80MWh grid-connected project, owned and operated by Hecate Energy was built by Mitsubishi Power. It features LFP batteries for the accumulation of 4 hours of energy and is part of a critical project integrating renewable energy into the California Independent System Operator (CAISO) grid. It’s role is to validate distributed energy resources (DER) capacity assumptions, study grid requirements and develop technology expertise for broad-scale DER implementation. The multiyear study will determine whether clean distributed energy can offset the increasing demand for electricity in central Orange County.

“We are very happy to have collaborated with Hecate Energy and Mitsubishi Power in this milestone project” said Nohra Nasr, Vice President and General Manager of Solar PV and BESS at Ingeteam Inc. “They have a deep experience in utility-scale energy storage projects, so we are delighted to partner with them with our long experience in the power electronics sector to support California’s efforts to move forward with clean energy technologies”.

For this project, Ingeteam supplied 20 units of the Ingecon Sun Storage 1245TL U B480 inverter. These inverters feature 1,500Vdc technology and will develop grid support functionalities, such as frequency regulation.
