Fire marshal talks tough on battery storage system fire codes

Fire marshal talks tough on battery storage system fire codes

Kendall County Fire Marshal Brady Constantine told a crowd of Kendall County residents Tuesday any plans for construction of battery energy storage systems, or BESS, will be heavily scrutinized once submitted to his office.

At least three international firms, including one based in South Korea and one in Norway, have rights to land along Flat Rock Creek Road in Kendall County near the Lower Colorado River Authority transfer station, where they plan to build BESS facilities.

Betty Poyo, whose family has operated a working livestock ranch, Flat Rock Ranch, for over 100 years, explained the relevance of the BESS requests to the crowd in the Comfort high School gymnasium.
