Lancaster, California installs energy storage, electric vehicle system

Sponsored by

The city of Lancaster has partnered with Green Charge Networks to install an intelligent energy storage system and an electric vehicle charging station at the Lancaster Museum of Art & History (MOAH).

During its regular meeting March 26, 2014, the Lancaster City Council approved the initiative. Funded by a California Energy Commission (CEC) grant, the system will be installed by private partner Green Charge Networks at no cost to the city. The project will generate an estimated $3,200 annually in cost savings.

The energy storage system will be the first installed in the High Desert region of California. The electric vehicle (EV) charging station — specifically, a Nissan DC fast charger — will also be the first of its kind in the High Desert. The charger features rapid charging capability that can charge compatible electric vehicles to 80 percent capacity in about 20 minutes. The charging station, to be located in MOAH's rear parking lot, will be available for use by the public.

The energy storage system and EV charging station will be installed in April. The charging station will be available for public use immediately upon installation.
