Idaho-based energy development company Franklin Energy at odds over $200 million lithium-ion battery storage plan with Idaho regulators

January 16, 2018View for printing

Idaho regulators twice rejected the company's https://www.franklinenergy.com/ request, saying the project is allowed only a two-year contract because the batteries would be charged with solar power.

The case could have far-reaching ramifications for emerging battery-storage technologies.

Franklin Energy is seeking to build a $200 million lithium-ion battery storage facility in Twin Falls County. It contends the project, under federal law, qualifies for a 20-year contract with Idaho Power, which has more than 500,000 customers in southern Idaho and eastern Oregon.
