Edison International, the owner of California’s second-largest utility, will seek contracts for at least 50 megawatts of energy-storage capacity to ensure long- term energy supplies in the Los Angeles area.
The requirement is separate from a 2010 law that requires regulators to set energy storage mandates for utilities in 2015 and 2020. [….]
Edison’s applications for the Los Angeles-area energy storage resources are expected to be submitted in late 2013 or early 2014 […] The amount of energy storage added may be more than 50 megawatts, because the commission also authorized the utility to procure as much as an additional 600 megawatts from energy efficiency, demand response, distributed generation or energy storage resources, according to the filing.
