1.2GW compressed-air storage project to power LA

Four US energy firms have planned an $8 billion wind storage project that includes a 1.2GW compressed air storage system.

The companies, Pathfinder Renewable Wind Energy, Magnum Energy, Dresser-Rand and Duke-American Transmission, plan to construct a 2.1GW wind farm in Wyoming to bring power to Los Angeles in California. High voltage lines would send the electricity to a salt-cavern compressed air site in Utah and then be released at times of peak demand in the Los Angeles area.
