Hello one and all and welcome to this morning’s edition of the pvMB. Today we’ll be tackling Renew Petra adding 100 MW to the U.S. annually, SimpliPhi adding capacity and lowering prices and more!
A California Community Choice Aggregator has awarded Sunrun a contract to supply capacity from solar + storage on low-income housing. This follows on a similar deal in New England.
A new report released by the U.S. Department of Energy projects that installed battery storage will reach 2.5 GW by 2023. Florida and New York are set to pave the way, as massive projects in each of those states will account for nearly half of the coming volume.
Interconnection requirements for mid-sized and large inverter-based systems directly connected to the transmission grid may change based on new guidance issued in draft form by the North American Electric Reliability Corporation. The guidance does not apply to distributed PV.
NREL research projects that as solar power breaks 10% and 25% penetration levels across the United States, energy storage has an up to ~144 GW / 728 GWh opportunity to replace 261 GW of gas peakers.
The Massachusetts SMART program is deploying 1.6 GW. The challenges of growth include long interconnection queues in some areas, incentives tapped out in others, equipment requirements increasing system costs, and utilities circling back after approvals to re-asses project interconnections.
The plan calls for the deployment of nearly 260 MW of battery storage across the three islands of Oahu, Maui and Hawaii, in addition to renewable development. Could the fixation on storage within this proposal show the state’s determination for peak shifting?
