Agilitas Energy is starting pre-construction work on what is expected to be the largest stand-alone battery energy storage project in Rhode Island, a 3 MW/9 MWh lithium-ion system in Pascoag.
The project will provide peak shaving services to the Pascoag Utility District and ancillary services to ISO-New England. It is the first battery energy storage system to be built by Agilitas in Rhode Island, and is planned to enter service by Q2 2022.
The project is being constructed to support Gov. Gina Raimondo’s 2020 executive order committing the state to meeting all of its electricity demand with renewables and non-fossil fuel resources by 2030.
Besides supporting the state’s renewable goals, the project is being constructed to avoid the more costly re-construction of existing transmission lines in the area.
With this project, Agilitas is now constructing over 40 MW of solar and over 70 MWh of energy storage projects in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and New York.
