Recurrent Energy solar business

Recurrent Energy, a subsidiary of Canadian Solar, signed a 15-year Resource Adequacy agreement with Pacific Gas & Electric to provide 150 MW / 600 MWh of energy storage in phase 2 of the Crimson project beginning in the summer of 2022.

The 350 MW / 1,400 MWh Crimson project will be one of the largest battery energy storage projects in the world when it comes online beginning in summer 2022.

Earlier this year, Southern California Edison awarded Recurrent Energy an energy storage contract for 200 MW / 800 MWh for phase 1 of the Crimson project located in Riverside County, California. Both contracts are stand-alone storage projects and are part of reliability procurements directed by the California Public Utilities Commission.
