BLM approves 300-MW Sunlight Storage II project in Southern California

A NextEra Energy Resources subsidiary won approval from the US BLM to build a 300 MW battery energy storage project at a solar farm in CA’s desert.

The newest project will add to the 230 MW Desert Sunlight Battery Energy Storage System that BLM said in August was fully operational. It’s on 94 acres of BLM-managed public land near Desert Center in Riverside County.
