Orange and Rockland Utilities Inc. has selected Key Capture Energy to design, install and operate its new battery storage project in Pomona, N.Y.
The utility did not disclose the capacity of the project, which will connect to its system through overhead distribution lines, according to a March 13 news release.
The battery storage project is part of the utility's program to help maintain reliable service for customers and reduce emissions from power plants. The Consolidated Edison Inc. subsidiary said the project will help the utility delay building costly new infrastructure to accommodate the few times in a year that energy use peaks.
The project is also expected to support New York's initiative to install 1,500 MW of battery storage throughout the state by 2025.
