Compressed-air energy storage project proposed in eastern Kern

California's ambitious climate goals have attracted interest from an international business partnership looking to build a groundbreaking, 500-megawatt compressed-air energy storage project in the Rosamond area.

The project announced Thursday would put an estimated 800 people to work during peak construction then employ the equivalent of up to 25 full-time workers while providing half a billion dollars in indirect economic benefits.
