As MCE Board chair, I signed an agreement for MCE’s largest battery-storage project to date, located in Kern County, which will provide enough power for an estimated 52,000 homes each year. The Golden Fields Solar project was selected after MCE’s annual solicitation for renewable energy and storage projects. With unanimous support by MCE’s Technical Committee of the Board, this new large-scale solar plus storage facility will generate 100 MW of solar energy with a co-located 75 MW lithium-ion battery.
“Projects like Golden Fields Solar are essential to California’s transition to a carbon-free power grid,” said Ford Greene, MCE Board Director, Technical Committee Chair, and Town of San Anselmo Councilmember. “Large battery storage projects that are co-located with renewable resources take us one step closer to an all-renewable electric grid, increase reliability, and create green-collar jobs.”
