The Rabbit Hill Battery Energy Storage System is a 10,000kW energy storage project located in Georgetown, Texas, US.
The electro-chemical battery energy storage project uses lithium-ion as its storage technology. The project was announced in 2016 and was commissioned in 2020.
The Rabbit Hill Battery Energy Storage System is owned by Ormat Technologies (100%).
The key applications of the project are electric energy time shift, frequency regulation and renewable energy time shift.
Alevo Group and Ormat Technologies have delivered the battery energy storage project.
The facility will provide ancillary services and energy optimisation to the wholesale markets managed by the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT), the grid operator for most of Texas. It was designed and constructed by Ormat’s subsidiary Viridity Energy Solutions Inc, which will own and operate the system that uses lithium-ion batteries.
