Energy storage can help renewable energy become a broader and even more beneficial resource in our nation's energy mix. The sun doesn't always shine, and the wind doesn't always blow, which creates reliability issues without fossil fuel resources to back them up.
The Prosperity Energy Storage Project features one of the largest combinations of battery storage and photovoltaic energy in the nation and involves extensive research and development of smart grid concepts with the University of New Mexico, Northern New Mexico College, East Penn Manufacturing and Sandia National Laboratories.
