The first stage of California Public Utilities Commission’s (CPUC) flagship energy storage target will be fully procured, according to the Commissioner responsible for its implementation.

In October 2013 CPUC approved a mandate requiring the state’s three large investor-owned utilities – Southern California Edison, Pacific Gas & Electric and San Diego Gas & Electric - to procure 1.325GW of energy storage by 2020. CPUC will issue in December its first competitive solicitation for the scheme, and with 136MW up for grabs demand is expected to be strong.
