The project was announced in 2019 and will be commissioned in 2021.

Description

The Broken Spoke Solar Plant – Battery Energy Storage System is being developed by RWE. The project is owned by RWE (100%).

The key applications of the project are renewable energy integaration, electric energy time shift and demand response.

Contractors involved

RWE is the owner. RWE is the developer.

Additional information

RWE Renewables,a subsidiary of Germany-based RWE Group, has entered into a 30-year PPA with Georgia Power for RWE’s Broken Spoke Solar project, a 195.5 MW solar facility with a 40 MW, 2-hour battery. This integrated solar plus storage facility will increase energy delivery during peak demand times and simplify integration of locally produced energy into the Georgia Power grid.
