Topic: "Electric Grid Battery Backup: Who gets to lead the next revolution in energy?"
Presenter: ONCOR.
ONCOR, Texas' largest regulated utility, just stepped forward with an audacious plan to invest $5.2 Billion to install 5,000 MW of batteries on the Texas utility grid. This emerging technology will help improve reliability, boost renewables, and may lower monthly electric bills. If this project goes through, it will be the largest project of its kind in the world.
