Hydrostor Seeks Approval for 3.2GWh Compressed Air Storage Facility in California

26 Nov, 2021

  • We are seeking approval for a pioneering 400MW Advanced Compressed Air Energy Storage (A-CAES) project in California, named the Pecho Energy Storage Center.
  • This initiative, located in San Luis Obispo County, surpasses current lithium-ion battery systems in capacity and offers eight hours of storage.
  • With an estimated $820 million investment, the project could help address the state’s energy transition needs and create skilled job opportunities.
  • Our A-CAES technology compresses air using electricity, storing it underground and releasing it to generate power when needed.
  • The project aligns with California’s energy storage goals and could contribute to global climate change mitigation efforts.
