NEC Energy Solutions and Amergin Energy will deploy at least 60-MW of NEC Energy's integrated battery storage systems for Amergin's late stage developments within the PJM Interconnection region. The 60-MW network will provide more than 525-MWh of flexible power, and is expected to be fully operational by mid-2016.
NEC Energy will provide its GSS Grid Storage Solution technology, as well as operational support throughout the network's 20-year useful life, integrating with Amergin's proprietary operational systems.
The GSS technology has already been deployed in megawatt-scale installations, totaling more than 110 MW to date, operating in commercial revenue service improving the reliability and flexibility of electric grids around the world.
Within the PJM region, NEC Energy has already deployed 54-MW of its GSS technology performing frequency regulation, with 32-MW in Elkins West Virginia, 20-MW in Moraine Ohio and 2-MW in Norristown Philadelphia. NEC Energy also supports and services these sites for its customers, ensuring they are running smoothly. These sites have been demonstrating about 99 percent commercial availability since operation started.
