Green Charge to install 2 MWh storage system at California college
Green Charge, which is 80% owned by Engie (formerly GDF Suez), takes a demand side management approach to the energy storage market.
Last October, the company teamed up with Pacific Gas and Electric to deliver grid services in northern and central California from distributed energy storage.
Under the agreement Green Charge is developing a fleet of energy storage systems in San Jose to evaluate how storage can support the grid when electric demand is high.
Green Charge used that same cost savings model last March with the installation of 7.4 MWh of storage devices at 14 sites in a San Diego school district.
Green Charge’s agreement with Pacific Union could reap the college as much as $800,000 in shared savings. The college expects that the storage system will help it improve its performance in Pacific Gas and Electric’s demand response programs.
