The Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority’s Battery Energy Storage System is a 20,000kW energy storage project located in Puerto Rico.
The project was announced in 2018 and will be commissioned in 2020.
The Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority’s Battery Energy Storage System is owned by Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority (100%).
The key applications of the project are frequency control and regulation, rapid spinning reserve, fast frequency response, voltage regulation and control, fast dynamic reactive power reserve and voltage support and black start capability.
Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority is the owner of Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority’s Battery Energy Storage System.
The BESS project will be interconnected to an 115kV switchyard owned by PREPA. The 20.0 MW/20.0 MWh BESS system should have the flexibility and modularity to expand to a 40 MW/160 MWh BESS Facility.
