Kearny Mesa Storage
San Diego, CA
The Kearny Mesa Battery Storage Project (“Kearny Mesa”) is a one megawatt, four megawatt hour battery storage facility located in San Diego, CA utilizing Solar Turbines LS1000-4 storage technology.
Kearny Mesa is located at a manufacturing site and is believed to be the first project of its kind to operate under FERC Order 841 and the CPUC’s Decision on Multi-Use Applications. Kearny Mesa is physically located behind the manufacturing site’s retail meter with San Diego & Gas Electric so it can provide traditional behind-the-meter services. Additionally, it is equipped with a CAISO meter and RIG so it can provide front-of-the-meter type ancillary services to the CAISO and battery storage resource adequacy to load serving entities.
The project was partially funded through the State’s Self Generation Incentive Program. Diamond Generating LLC’s affiliate company, Boston Energy Trading & Marketing, is the scheduling coordinator for the project.
