Luminant, a subsidiary of Vistra Energy, announced that it has been awarded a $1 million grant from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality for its Upton 2 battery energy storage system project.

Once complete, the 10-MW/42-MWh lithium-ion energy storage system at Upton 2 will be the largest in Texas and the seventh-largest in the United States, Vistra said
The company expects the project to be operational in late 2018. Upton 2 Solar Power Plant is located near McCamey in Upton County, Texas.
