New legislation in California has been signed into law by state governor Gavin Newson which requires battery storage facilities to apply special safety and communication protocols.
According to an article on EnergyStorageNews on October 17, 2023, Governor Gavin Newsom signed Senate Bill 38 (SB 38) earlier this month on October 7th.
The legislation requires battery storage facilities in the state of California to put in place emergency response and emergency plans, in addition to existing requirements for their maintenance and operation to meet standards set by the regulatory California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC).
