About the Project

The North Bay Energy Storage Project is an electrical grid-connected energy storage resource that uses lithium-ion batteries to support healthy operation of the electrical grid and the integration of renewable energy sources such as wind and solar. The proposed Project is a 200-megawatt (MW) / 800-megawatt-hour (MWh) capacity battery energy storage system (BESS) facility to be located on 15-acres of the former Petaluma Adobe Golf Course property. The Project will directly connect to the PG&E Lakeville Substation next to the golf course property in unincorporated Sonoma County.

How it Works

Battery energy storage systems balance the load on the power grid by storing electricity during low demand periods and discharging it during peak demand periods. This helps utilities optimize power generation resources, reduce costs, and ensure a reliable supply of electricity to customers.

The Energy Storage Project will help add electrical grid flexibility for Petaluma and Sonoma County. It will help store excess energy when energy generation is greater than demand and returns the stored energy to the electrical grid when demand exceeds supply.

The North Bay Energy Storage Project is being proposed by Bolero Energy Storage, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Strata Clean Energy (Strata). Strata is a U.S company with the experience and resources to develop and operate the facility safely and effectively. Strata has invested $4 billion dollars in 250+ renewable energy projects and energy storage projects located throughout the country. For more information about Strata Clean Energy, please visit
