Eolus has made investment decision for the Pome battery project in US
Eolus has made an investment decision for the 100 MW stand-alone battery storage project Pome in the United States. Construction of the project will commence in Q3 2023 with planned commercial operation in Q4 2024.
The Pome battery storage project is located in San Diego County, California and has a planned capacity of 100 MW/400 MWh. An agreement regarding supply of a battery energy storage system has been signed with a major BESS supplier, and a ten-year tolling agreement has been signed with an undisclosed buyer. The project is under development by Eolus North America since 2019.
“There is a strong demand for energy storage in California to support the energy system and we are excited to realize this project. We see great interest for investing in renewable energy and energy storage”, says Hans-Christian Schulze, Country Manager of Eolus North America.
“Eolus has been active in the US since 2015 and we have a strong project pipeline, where the US projects make up one-quarter of Eolus’s total project portfolio. After the Inflation Reduction Act being signed the US market is really booming. We are delighted to continue our investments by constructing the Pome project”, says Per Witalisson, CEO of Eolus.
Eolus North America is currently developing 6,000 MW of projects in the Western United States and has developed and sold approximately 900 MW of wind, solar plus storage and stand-alone storage projects in California and Arizona. Eolus North America is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Eolus Vind AB.
