Key Capture Energy has partnered with Powin Energy Corporation (Powin) on our KCE NY 3 battery storage project, which is part of Orange & Rockland’s (O&R) Pomona Non-Wires Alternative initiative. We are pleased to have been selected by O&R to plan, design, install and operate the Pomona battery storage project and have contracted with Powin to provide a fully integrated battery energy storage system including cells, enclosures, cabling, transformers, inverters, and all software and controls systems. In addition, per the agreement, Powin is responsible for commissioning the battery energy storage system and for scheduling the system in response to O&R dispatch. SunGrid Solutions, in partnership with Black & McDonald, has been selected to provide the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) and balance of plant (BOP) services.
Geoff Brown, President of Powin Energy, said, “This will be our fourth project with KCE and we are excited to be working with such a forward-looking and creative team. The future is being created with projects like this.”
Jeremy Goertz, Managing Director at SunGrid Solutions, added, “Leveraging our past experience of working together with KCE and Powin will allow us to bring a focused approach while supporting this cutting-edge project in the fastest growing energy storage market in North America.”
Our KCE NY 3 project will connect to the O&R system through O&R’s overhead distribution lines and will allow O&R to delay building costly new infrastructure designed to accommodate energy use at its peak — an event that occurs only a few times during the year.
Our Chief Operating Officer, Dan Fitzgerald stated, “We applaud O&R’s efforts to incorporate new technologies to make its operations more reliable, resilient and sustainable, and to help consumers make more informed energy choices. We are pleased to partner with Powin, who brings decades of leadership experience and technical expertise, on the KCE NY 3 Pomona battery storage project, which will allow O&R to defer costly electrical system upgrades and reduce emissions from power plants while increasing power grid reliability and creating value for the utility’s 300,000 electric customers.”
We look forward to working with Powin, SunGrid Solutions, and Black & McDonald to bring this project online later this year and to help New York State meet its goal of installing 3,000 megawatts of energy storage by 2030.
