AES Corporation has notched 100 MW of installed grid-scale storage with commercial operation of a 40 MW lithium-ion facility in Moraine, Ohio.
The project, at Dayton Power & Light’s Tait Generation Station, provides fast-response frequency regulation services to PJM Interconnection to help stabilize the power grid.
The 40-MW facility is the fifth facility by AES to run on its storage operating system, called sOS. The system is a fast-response control architecture that automates the operation of AES-delivered battery-based energy storage arrays.
The Tait battery array includes more than 800,000 battery cells and connects through the station’s transformers, operated by DP&L and DPL Energy LLC, through an independent agreement with PJM.
