Strata Clean Energy’s Inland Empire Energy Storage was awarded a 15-year Resource Adequacy Agreement with Energy Settlement by Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E), which filed an Advice Letter at the California Public Utilities Commission for approval of 6,396 megawatt hours (MWh) of new and incremental utility-scale battery energy storage systems (BESS).
“The IEES project in Rialto, CA is a 100MW stand-alone battery energy storage system contracted to produce 400MWhs of capacity by the summer of 2024,” said Josh Rogol, Chief Development Officer for Strata. “As a fully developed BESS with site control, an executed interconnection agreement and completed entitlements, IEES was well positioned to respond to the request for offers.”
This is Strata’s second contracted BESS in California. The 400MWh Ventura Energy Storage project (now owned by Arevon) came online in the summer of 2021 and is serving Southern California Edison under a twenty-year Resource Adequacy Agreement.
Strata Clean Energy and its affiliates are a vertically integrated solar and storage development, engineering/procurement/construction, and operation/maintenancecompany. Strata has more than 170 projects in operation, 9GW/16GWh in development, and 4GW in its O&M portfolio. Strata is made up of a group of specialized businesses: Strata Clean Energy Development, Strata Clean Energy Storage and Strata Clean Energy Services. Together they focus on the various needs of a renewable energy project including financing, development, EPC, O&M and energy storage services for utility and corporate customers.
A noteworthy project in its portfolio includes what was the largest solar installation in Washington state in 2018.
The article title was amended with the most recent project and update the company’s name to Strata Clean Energy.

If this (almost) 6,396 MWhr of Energy Storage uses Electric Batteries… will the PUC also start building Toxic Waste Handling Facilities for the Dead Batteries… in California (please)..??
YOU POLLUTE …. YOU KEEP IT IN YOUR BACKYARD… 🤣🤣😭😭😭😭😭
Get it Ajay! Lol
Do you hold fossil fuel companies to the same standard? What about the mercury in your fish, tailing ponds, coal slag, and the methane and CO2 and particulates that Exxon, Big Coal, Vladimir Putin, and the Saudi royalty are selling but not keeping in their backyard?
Mr., Away you are right.
But batteries can be recycled much easier than methane, mercury, CO2, etc can be re-captured once they go out the stack..
Please realize what fossil fuel megalith is dumping on you and yours.
Yes, you are right. But batteries can be recycled much easier than methane, mercury, CO2, etc can be re-captured once they go out the stack, or slag and tailing pond waste… Please realize what fossil fuel megalith is dumping on you and yours.
Big Oil, Big Coal, Vladimir Putin, the Saudi royals, etc, have been and are dumping and strip-mining, and polluting your air land and water for years. If you demand battery recycling, demand equal protection from fossil fuel megalith. You and yours are just an “externality” to them, so your environment gets worse. Push them too!
