The Race To Build The World’s Largest Solar-Storage Plant Is On

Batteries and renewable energy paired together are now threatening the economics of fossil fuel-fired power plants around the world. A BloombergNEF analysis showed storage is now, for the first time, the cheapest option for meeting peak power demand in some cases.
According to Bloomberg news, Last year, a company won a contract to build a 65-megawatt solar and battery farm in Arizona. A month later, the Saudis came out with a $200 billion plan to build the world’s biggest battery-backed solar farm by 2030. Then a firm proposed a nearly 500-megawatt solar-storage site in Texas’s oil patch.
The race to build the biggest solar-battery plant is officially on.
And the latest to join the competition is renewable energy giant ​NextEra Energy Inc., ​which said Thursday that it’ll build a project in Florida that will claim the title of the largest solar-powered battery in the world. The 409-megawatt battery will be added to an existing 74.5-megawatt solar plant on the west coast of the state near Tampa.
