S&C to build 7 MW energy storage systems in Ohio

S&C electric co elp

Energy storage integration firm S&C Electric Co. won a new project by Half Moon Ventures to supply and build a 7 MW energy storage facility.

The project will be located in Minster, Ohio and is being built in conjunction with the local municipal utility, the village of Minster.

HMV and the village of Minster will benefit from four unique revenue streams, which will offset the costs of grid improvements while improving the rate of return. HMV will be able to sell into PJM’s frequency regulation market, which helps to provide grid reliability for more than 60 million customers. The village of Minster will use the energy storage system to defer T&D costs, improve power quality and shave peak demand.

HMV will use S&C’s 7 MW PureWave SMS Storage Management System, providing fully integrated storage management and power conversion for 3 MWh of lithium ion-batteries. The system will help Minster better manage energy demand during peak periods and provide reliable back-up power, while deferring the acquisition of costly reactive power compensation equipment.

The system will also be tied to HMV’s adjacent 4.2 MW solar plant, allowing Minster to further reduce their peak demand charges in the middle of the day.

In addition to the SMS, S&C is supplying their 15-kV Vista Underground Distribution Switchgear to provide protection and control between the storage system and the grid. S&C’s scope of work will include all major power system studies as well as the complete engineering, procurement and construction for the project.
