Project Objectives

This project will deploy a 12MW solar Photovoltaic (PV) facility with 4 MW/9 MWh integrated Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) and an intelligent Distributed Energy Resource Management System (DERMS). The project will reduce the peak load demand at the E.L. Smith Water Treatment Plant (WTP) with on-site hybrid generation/storage and together with the DERMS software, enable effective use of the grid-connected system to address capacity shortfalls in power system wires infrastructure.

Expected Results

The project will improve electricity delivery and reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) through the integration of solar power generation and battery storage and the development of intelligent management controls. This project will increase grid resiliency and reliability as well as improve service for customers.
