The electro-chemical battery energy storage project uses lithium-ion as its storage technology. The project was announced in 2016 and was commissioned in 2016.

Description

The Nextera Wyman – Battery Energy Storage System was developed by NextEra Energy. The project is owned by NextEra Energy (100%).

The key application of the project is frequency regulation.

Contractors involved

NextEra Energy has delivered the battery energy storage project.

Additional information

The project is part of an industry-wide trend to use battery storage to moderate power supply to the grid, potentially lowering electricity prices for consumers. In other instances, including potential projects in Maine, batteries can store the intermittent power generated by wind and solar, which are affected by the weather.
