Battery Energy Storage Systems

As the nation’s leader in energy storage, we’re not only capturing energy from the wind and sun, we’re storing it.


No. 1 in Energy Storage

NextEra Energy has more energy storage capacity than any other company in the U.S. With more than 100 MW of battery energy storage systems in operation, we're ensuring Americans have the energy they need, whenever they need it.

With the largest amount of operational storage of any company in the U.S., we can store when energy demand is low and supply when energy demand is high.

BabcockRanch-solar-storage

We're continuing to lead the industry with storage innovations such as our Babcock Ranch Solar Energy Center – the largest combined solar-plus-storage facility in the country. This cutting-edge project incorporates a 10-MW battery storage project into the operations of a 74.5-MW solar power plant.

Pinal-Central-Energy-Storage (2)

Our 20-MW Pinal Central Solar Energy Center is Arizona’s largest utility-scale solar energy center paired with a battery storage system. Along with generating enough solar energy to power 5,000 homes, this facility stores excess energy in a state-of-the-art lithium-ion battery storage system.

Enhancing the electric grid

Our batteries store power generated by our facilities when the sun is shining, then dispatch the stored power to the grid to supplement dips in operation – such as when clouds roll in and temporarily reduce the sunlight reaching a solar plant's panels. The stored power can also be dispatched during periods of peak customer electricity demand, such as summer afternoons and evening hours when the sun is going down but air conditioning needs remain high.
