Electric power systems provider S&C Electric Company has signed a deal to supply and build a 7 MW lithium-ion energy storage facility in Ohio, US.
The contract with Half Moon Ventures (HMV) will make it the largest solar+storage system in the U.S., claims S&C.
The system will be connected to a 4.2 MW solar PV plant owned by HMV, although the company hasn’t released a date for completion.
S&C will supply its PureWave Storage Management System, which will provide power conversion for 3 MWh of lithium-ion batteries.
The system consists of a master control system and a 2-MW/2.5-MVA power conversion system (PCS). The PCS is in turn comprised of two inverters, each rated 1 MW/1.25 MVA. The company is also supplying its 15kV distribution switchgear.
