California Senate Green-Lights Key Energy Storage Bill

Today, the California Senate passed S.B.700, a bill that could result in nearly 3 GW of behind-the-meter energy storage systems at schools, farms, homes, nonprofits and businesses in California by 2026, according to the California Solar and Storage Association (CALSSA).

The bill was passed today with a preliminary 25-13 vote and passed on Wednesday by the Assembly with a final vote of 57-18. It now heads to the governor’s desk for his consideration, says CALSSA.

The resulting program established by the bill would be on par with the highly successful program California set in motion with the Million Solar Roofs Initiative back in 2006, the association notes.
