Edison International’s utility unit has announced it has completed the first-of-its kind battery storage and natural gas power systems in Southern California. 

Southern California Edison, General Electric Co. and Wellhead Power Solutions have partnered to install 10-megawatt lithium-ion batteries at two of the utility’s gas generators.

According to a company statement, the batteries can provide instant power while gas turbines ramp up; and are expected to reduce fuel use and lead to emission reduction of at least 60 percent.
