Duke Energy Gets Approval for Solar+Standalone Battery and Microgrid

Duke Energy announced that regulators have approved two projects involving energy storage worth about $30 million. The first project is a microgrid for Madison County that will use solar PV and lithium-ion batteries. The second is a large battery storage project in the city of Asheville.
According to RenewableEnergyWorld, in the town of Hot Springs, Duke will build a solar and battery-powered microgrid system that will help improve electric reliability, provide services to the overall electric system and serve as a backup power supply to the town of more than 500 residents. The microgrid will consist of a 2-MW (AC) solar facility and a 4.4 MW / 4.4 MWh lithium-based battery storage facility. The microgrid will provide a safe, cost-effective and reliable grid solution for the Hot Springs area as well as energy and additional bulk system benefits for all customers, said Duke in a press release. This will include reliability services to the electric grid, such as frequency and voltage regulation and ramping support and capacity during system peaks.
