In December 2018, the company completed the sale of its solar assets and battery storage development projects, along with one wind farm, to a subsidiary of Consolidated Edison for $1.6 billion. In February, it executed the sale of its non-utility U.S. natural gas storage facilities to an affiliate of ArcLight Capital Partners for $328 million in cash, marking its exit from the non-utility natural gas storage sector. The company is currently working to sell its equity interest in its South American businesses including its 83.6 pct stake in Luz del Sur S.A.A. in Peru and 100 pct stake in Chilquinta Energia S.A. in Chile.
The company said the move is consistent with a strategy to pay down debt and redeploy capital to support the growth of Sempra Energy in North America.

Regulators approved a plan for Consolidated Edison Co. to significantly expand the use of battery storage systems in its service territory by simplifying the process for private owners.
The PSC also allowed larger storage projects to participate in the state's clean-energy program. The decision raises the maximum rated capacity for projects from 2 MW to 5 MW.
The new rules crafted a more straightforward process to allow private energy storage systems to export electricity to ConEd's distribution system.
