      California's Record-Setting Virtual Power Plant

      In its first year of operation, a record-setting virtual power plant in California has delivered more than 2 gigawatt-hours to the grid. The VPP is part of massive grid modernization undertaken by Southern California Edison, which provides power to 15 million people across a 50,000-square-mile swath of the state. Designed and operated by AMS and owned by Macquarie Capital, the virtual power plant is tasked to reduce peak demand in the Los Angeles Basin by installing battery storage systems behind the meter at properties of SCE’s commercial customers. The project’s first phase (11 megawatts/60 megawatt-hours) went into operation last year.
