GE (NYSE: GE) and Southern California Edison (SCE), an Edison International (NYSE: EIX) company commissioned the world’s second battery-gas turbine hybrid system in Rancho Cucamonga, California. This is the second of two units that GE has delivered for SCE only months after announcing initial deployment plans of this technology.

This system, called the LM6000 Hybrid Electric Gas Turbine (Hybrid EGT)* supports SCE’s increasing renewable energy capacity by providing quick start, fast ramping capabilities when they are needed. The unit integrates a 10 MW/ 4.3 MWh battery energy storage system capable of immediately providing power with GE’s proven 50MW LM6000 aeroderivative gas turbine.
