Axion Power to supply energy storage for 9.1 MW Pennsylvania solar farm

Axion Power International Inc., a developer of advanced lead-carbon PbC batteries, energy storage systems and frequency regulation systems, today announced it has been designated as the supplier of energy storage and frequency regulation for a solar farm that, when finished, will be the largest in Pennsylvania.

The Coatesville Solar Initiative announced its choice of Axion Power and its PbC technology and batteries for the 48-acre project. Axion Power PbC PowerCube technology has been admitted to connect with the 13-state PJM power grid, and brings that certification to the CSI project.

Phase I & II of the multi-phased project is comprised of two 2.4 MW (DC) solar facilities, generating about 6.3 million kWh which CSI has contractually agreed to sell Coatesville Area School District through a 25-year solar power purchase agreement. According to CSI, when completed, the 9.1 MW solar farm will be the largest solar park facility in Pennsylvania.

If the CSI solar farm reaches its full potential over a multi-year span, the batteries to be used could total about in the 5,000 to 6,000 range based on the proposed size of the project.
