The Broken Spoke Solar Plant – Battery Energy Storage System is a 40,000kW energy storage project located in Mitchell County, Georgia, US.
The project was announced in 2019 and will be commissioned in 2021.
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.
RWE is the owner. RWE is the developer.
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.
