NextEra Energy Resources and utility Salt River Project (SRP) have completed the Pinal Central Solar Energy Center in Arizona, an integrated PV plant equipped with a battery.

The 20MW project is Arizona’s largest utility-scale solar farm paired with a battery storage system, and will generate enough energy to power 5,000 households. Equipped with a 10MW lithium-ion battery storage system, the storage portion stores energy which can be dispatched during the early evening peak, when households tend to demand more energy and solar generation is ramping down.
