CA: $4.5 Million - Los Angeles (TIGGER Grant)


Printer Friendly

The transit agency will use the $4.5 million grant to install a wayside energy storage substation (WESS)—which captures energy produced by braking a train and transfers it back to the same train or another train when it starts or accelerate—on the high-speed heavy rail subway Red Line. The nearby traction power substation will be switched off when the WESS is operating. This technology reduces the demand for energy and saves power for use during peak times.
