Stem Inc. has been awarded 85 MW in the local capacity procurement from Southern California Edison.
Under the terms of the agreement, Stem will deploy its behind-the-meter energy storage solution at customer locations in the Western Los Angeles Basin to serve as dispatchable capacity for the region.
Stem will begin system deployment following approval from the California Public Utilities Commission.
Stem was previously selected for projects with the Sacramento Municipal Utility District and Hawaiian Electric Company, and is active in the California Independent System Operator wholesale energy market.
‘This is a major win for behind-the-meter storage, demonstrating that this technology is a valuable tool for both utilities and their commercial and industrial customers,’ says Janice Lin, co-founder and executive director for the California Energy Storage Alliance.
