PEARL RIVER, NY March 13, 2019 – Orange & Rockland (O&R) and Key Capture Energy (KCE) today announced that O&R has selected KCE, an Albany-based, independent developer of utility-scale battery storage projects, to plan, design, install and operate O&R’s new battery storage project in Pomona.
The battery storage project is part of O&R’s Pomona Non-Wires Alternative (NWA) Project, a program designed to help O&R maintain reliable service for customers and reduce emissions from power plants. This innovative program is comprised of an array of strategies designed to provide smarter energy management.
This initiative arises from Orange & Rockland’s efforts to reduce costs, incorporate new technologies to make its operations more reliable, resilient and sustainable, and to help consumers make more informed energy choices. New energy products and services, such as the Pomona battery storage project, provide the region with environmental benefits, while also creating new jobs and economic opportunity. This project supports New York State’s initiative to install 1,500 megawatts (MW) of battery storage throughout the state by 2025.
