The CPUC approved a massive roster of new battery storage projects in California earlier this year, putting the state, on paper, to make significant headway in growing its storage capacity and alleviating load pressures on the grid during peak hours.

To harp once again on a favorite peeve: it really undermines one's confidence in a news source when its reporters on energy news don't grasp the difference between between energy and power. "How much energy storage will this new project add?" you ask. Answer "Six gigawatts". Then "How tall is this new office building going to be?" Answer "It will be 40 meters per second tall". Those answers make equal sense. C'mon people! We can do better.
