Matt Markovich at KOMO News spotlights the Snohomish County PUD energy storage project funded by the Clean Energy Fund. From the article:
If the power goes out, the Snohomish County Public Utility District just needs to flip on its big battery. At PUD's Hardenson Substation in South Everett, there are two 50-foot containers you won't find anywhere else.
The project was made possible in part by a $7.3 million investment from the Washington State Clean Energy Fund; and an additional $1 million from the Clean Energy Fund for a partnership with the Bonneville Power Administration and the University of Washington to optimize the use of energy storage and demand response.
