Vistra today announced that its Moss Landing Energy Storage Facility connected to the power grid and began operating on Dec. 11, 2020.
"At 300 megawatts/1,200 megawatt-hours, the lithium-ion battery storage system, located on-site at Vistra's Moss Landing Power Plant in Monterey County, California, will be the largest of its kind in the world," Vistra said
