GE Power & Water (NYSE: GE) will supply Con Edison Development (CED) with a lithium ion battery solution in Central Valley, California. The system has a capacity of 8MWh (2MW over a 4 hour period) and uses GE’s Mark Vle-based plant control system and Brilliance MW Inverters together with the battery modules.
This installation is said to be CED’s first energy storage project and also marks the first time GE is introducing a lithium ion battery solution.
The agreement includes delivery of a complete energy storage system with associated long-term service agreements.
According to Mark Noyes, SVP and COO of CED, CED has “a history of working with GE in thermal and wind, and…[will] continue [their] long-standing collaboration into the evolving world of energy storage”.
Operations on the site are expected to begin within the next 6 to 9 months.
