Developer 8minute Says More Than 24GWh Of Batteries Included In Its US Solar-Plus-Storage Pipeline

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on Energy Storage News.

What caught my eye was the 24 GWh!

When you consider that the biggest battery in the UK is Electric Mountain, which has a capacity of 9 GWh, 24 GWh of batteries is a large number!

It will need a lot of solar panels to keep that amount of batteries brim-full.

This is a sentence from the article.

The company’s projects include the Eland Solar & Storage Center, which will comprise 400MWac of PV and 300MW / 1,200MWh of battery energy storage, currently under construction in California’s Mojave Desert.

Those are big numbers against the UK’s largest solar park at Shotwick in Wales, which is just 72.2 MW.
