Los Angeles, CA

Project Info

Project Description

Rated Power: 2 MW
Rated Capacity: 8 kWh
Technology Type: Array
Powered by: VYCON, LA Metro, Federal Transit Authority
Services Provided: Transportation Services, Electric Bill Management, Voltage Support

Los Angeles Metropolitan Transportation Authority (LACMTA) uses VYCON’s green regenerative technology to store energy generated by braking trains and redistributes that energy to rail lines to accelerate trains – vastly improving energy usage that otherwise would be wasted in the form of heat. Thus far, the project has saved 541 megawatt hours (MWh), enough to provide power to 1000 average California homes.
