Powin Energy to Build 12.8-MW Energy Storage Portfolio in Canada

Powin Energy Corp, a provider of energy storage solutions for utilities, C&I, and microgrid applications, is partnering with Hecate Energy to build, deliver, and install projects with a total capacity of 12.8 MW/52.8MWh at two sites in Ontario, Canada.

Powin’s modular Stack140 will be the building block for each storage system.

The projects were all contracted with Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) as part of their long-term energy plan.

These six projects comprise the largest rollout of energy storage in Canada and are expected to be online by the end of September 2017. The projects will be split across two sites in Kitchener and Stratford, Ontario. The system in Stratford will be housed inside of a newly constructed building specifically designed to support twenty Powin Energy 2 MWh battery arrays. At the Kitchener location, six Powin Energy 2 MWh 40-foot outdoor battery energy storage products will be deployed.

Powin Energy recently installed a 2 MW/9 MWh energy storage system in under six months in Irvine, California, for Southern California Edison that is part of the California Public Utilities Commission’s response to the Aliso Canyon natural gas leak.
