VALLEY CENTER ENERGY STORAGE FACILITY
Located in Valley Center, San Diego County, CA and co-located within Terra-Gen’s existing wind generation project footprint, the Valley Center Energy Storage Facility is a stand-alone 139MW energy storage project located on 7-acre property within land within Valley Center’s commercial-industrial zone.
The Valley Center Energy Storage Facility produces enough electricity to power up to 140,000 homes for four hours on a single charge, and includes long-term power purchase agreements with San Diego Gas & Electric. The Project provides important grid reliability services to the local area, and helps integrate greater supplies of renewable energy in California. It has also provided the local community tens of millions in tangible economic benefits in the form of direct and indirect jobs associated with the Project’s construction, increased property taxes, and donations to the local Valley Center Fire Protection District.
