The Martha Vineyard-Oak Bluffs Service Center – Battery Energy Storage System Phase 2 is a 9,800kW energy storage project located in Oak Bluffs Service Center, Massachusetts, US. The rated storage capacity of the project is 64,000kWh.
The electro-chemical battery energy storage project uses lithium-ion as its storage technology. The project was announced in 2018 and will be commissioned in 2023.
The Martha Vineyard-Oak Bluffs Service Center – Battery Energy Storage System Phase 2 is owned by Eversource Energy (100%).
The key applications of the project are peak shaving and energy demand management.
Eversource Energy is the owner of Martha Vineyard-Oak Bluffs Service Center – Battery Energy Storage System Phase 2.
The project will utilize a lithium-ion, 14.7 MW battery system that will supply peak load in the event of an emergency, like an outage or the failure of an undersea cable. It will also help to offset high-demand usage during summer months. Construction will be split into two phases, with 4.9 MW/20 MWh of storage completed in the first phase and the remaining 9.8 MW/64 MWh in the second phase. The electric storage and other equipment will be housed in a two-story building on Eversource-owned land behind our area work center in Oak Bluffs.
