Eos Energy Secures $20 million order—the Largest in Company History—to Supply Long Duration Storage to California Power Grid
Deal with EnerSmart extends backlog of energy storage systems Eos is scheduled to install in 2021
EDISON, N.J.— Eos Energy Enterprises, Inc. (NASDAQ: EOSE) (“Eos”), a leading provider of safe, scalable, efficient, and sustainable zinc-based energy storage systems, today announced a firm order from EnerSmart, a developer, owner and operator of utility scale energy storage projects, to provide at least 90MWh, and as much as 180MWh, of energy storage over the next 24 months.
The projects are planned to be powered by Eos’s innovative Znyth® battery technology to provide improved grid stability and increased renewables utilization across multiple locations in California. The first project, anticipated to supply 9MWh of storage in El Cajon to CAISO (California’s independent grid operator), is valued at $2 million with installation scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2021.
