SunEdison is set to provide lithium-ion batteries for nine residences being constructed by Meritage Homes Corporation in California. Each battery will be of 5 kilowatt capacity.
The batteries are being provided under the “Zero-net energy project” of Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), a non-profit organization. The project is aimed at making under development buildings dirty-power-free.
As part of the project, photovoltaic rooftop modules will power all new households by the end of 2020, BidnessEtc has reported.
The project is being financially supported by California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC).
Construction work as part of Zero-net project has started in Fontana, California, the BidnessEtc reports.
SunEdison had recently signed an agreement with the government of Tamil Nadu, an Indian state, to develop 2 gigawatts of wind and solar energy capacity within five years.
