LS Power exposed the largest battery energy storage project in the world – Gateway Energy Storage. The 250 megawatts (MW) Gateway project located in the East Otay Mesa community in San Diego County, California. It enhances grid reliability and reduces customer energy costs.

Paul Segal, CEO, LS Power said: “For more than three decades, LS Power has been at the leading edge of our nation’s transition to cleaner, more innovative energy solutions, and we are powering up Gateway Energy Storage as one more component of this vision. Through our investments in multiple sectors of the renewables and energy infrastructure space, LS Power is reducing carbon emissions and improving reliability in the markets we serve.”

Gateway Energy Storage, currently at 230 MW and on track to reach 250 MW by the end of the month, follows another LS Power battery project, Vista Energy Storage in Vista, California, which has been operating since 2018 and was previously the largest battery storage project in the United States at 40 MW.

John King, Head of Renewables, LS Power said: “Gateway and LS Power’s other California-based energy projects will support the state in its clean energy and storage goals. LS Power is a first mover in commercializing new technologies and developing new markets. By charging during solar production or off-peak hours and delivering energy to the grid during times of peak demand for power, our battery storage projects improve electric reliability, reduce costs and help our state meet its climate objectives.”
