Ice Energy Wins Deal In Riverside

Santa Barbara-based Ice Energy, a developer of energy storage technology, reports that it has scored a win with Riverside Public Utilities. According to Ice Energy, it has signed a five-year contract to provide 5 megawatts of thermal energy storage, using its systems. The company's systems will be used to reduce peak energy usage for the City of Riverside. Ice Energy's systems freeze ice at night, during off-peak power times, and uses that ice during the day for cooling.
