Eos Energy Storage Announces Agreement for 500 MWh Project with Carson Hybrid Energy Storage
EDISON, N.J. SEPTEMBER 1, 2020 -- Eos Energy Storage (“Eos”), a leading manufacturer of safe, low-cost, and long-duration zinc hybrid cathode (Znyth™) battery energy storage systems, today announced that it has entered into an agreement to supply Carson Hybrid Energy Storage, LLC (“CHES”) with 500 MWh of integrated AC battery energy storage systems (“BESS”). Eos will manufacture, design and deliver its zinc-based battery solutions to CHES starting in the first quarter of 2023. These safe, sustainable, long duration battery solutions will be used in parallel with existing power generation and substation architecture to store renewable energy generated capacity, and to provide power quality and better resilience to the California Power Grid.
“The recent rolling blackouts in California call for another transformation in energy, this time related to supply. We believe long duration energy storage is going to play a pivotal role in this transformation over the next three to five years,” commented Balki G. Iyer, Chief Commercial Officer of Eos. “Eos is delighted to be partnering with an innovator such as CHES, which is seeking to build this project to provide solutions around a premium zone in Los Angeles. Eos’s zinc batteries are non-flammable, built with environmentally friendly materials, and are manufactured right here in the USA. They are a perfect fit for addressing the need which we have seen from some of our recent projects in California on a smaller scale.”
