Broad Reach invests in lithium-ion energy storage for Cascade project in California


United StatesBroad Reach Power has invested in SYL Battery’s 118-megawatt-hour (MWh) energy storage technology to support the Cascade Energy Storage project in Stockton, California.

Cascade is a 25-Megawatt (MW)/100-Megawatt-hour (MWh) front-of-the-meter project that will go into commercial operation in the summer of 2022 to help California deal with capacity shortages. Cascade was chosen by Pacific Gas & Electric in 2017 to ensure resource adequacy under a 20-year deal. In late 2020, Broad Reach bought the project.

Broad Reach has placed its second order with SYL Battery, the first being for 47 MWh for the Sierra Energy Storage Project in Jamestown, California. Broad Reach Power and SYL Battery have formed a framework, master procurement agreement to facilitate faster procurement for Broad Reach Power’s substantial, multi-year GWh project pipeline.
