Apple to build battery-based solar energy storage project in California

Stephen Nellis reports on Reuters that Apple will build a battery-based solar energy storage project in California.

The C3 Take
  • The battery storage project will store 240 megawatt-hours of electricity, enough to power 7,000 homes for one day.
  • Apple is looking to address the biggest obstacle to renewable energy use–battery storage. If their project is successful, Apple will be able to unlock new ways for us to use renewable energy.
  • Private sector innovation, not government mandates, is creating the pathways that are necessary to reduce our emissions.

“The site sends 130-megawatts of electricity directly to Apple’s California facilities during daylight hours but does not provide power during dark hours. Lisa Jackson, Apple’s vice president of environment, policy and social initiatives, told Reuters in an interview the company intends to develop what it believes will be one of the largest battery-based storage systems in the United States.”
