Battery Energy Storage – Facilities
Concord Monarch GP2 Ltd. (“Concord Monarch”) filed an application with the AUC for approval to alter the already approved Monarch Solar Project (the “Power Plant”) by adding a 21-megawatt, 42-megawatt-hour battery energy storage system (“BESS”) within the existing fence line of the Power Plant.
The BESS will allow for two hours of storage and charge primarily from on-site solar production and discharge to the 25-kilovolt distribution system while also having the ability to charge from the distribution system.
The AUC approved the application from Coaldale Monarch to add the BESS to the Power Plant.
