Range ESS will offer capacity in a bulk energy storage project located on the soon-to-be-retired site of the Intermountain Power Project near Delta, Utah.
Range Energy Storage Systems: Bulk Energy Storage for Western Utilities
Range ESS plans to construct, own, and operate a CAES project with up to 320 MW/hr discharge capability at the site of the soon-to-be-retired Intermountain Power Project (IPP) and at the terminus of the Southern Transmission System (STS) which connects to Southern California. The Range storage facility is suitable for operation as a grid-level system resource, or could also be paired with and connected to an associated renewable generation facility. Both options support renewable integration.
The Range Energy Storage Systems project offers utilities in Southern California, Utah, and throughout the west the opportunity to reduce costs, reduce GHGs, and improve the efficiency of renewables on its system with minimal risk. Range offers guarantees on efficiency is backed by a creditworthy Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) and Engineering Procurement and Construction (EPC) consortium.
Range ESS intends to work through the Southern California Public Power Authority (SCPPA) to offer initial capacity in the project to SCPPA members.
Range ESS is also interested in opportunities to work with other utilities in California, Utah, and across the west, through the sale of capacity in the 160-320 MW project or from the development of additional CAES facilities.
