Winning a $1.7 million contract awarded by Perini Management Services, Indiana’s Go Electric is to install a 1 megawatt (MW)/1 megawatt-hour (Mwh) advanced battery-based energy storage system (BESS) at the Tooele Army Depot (TEAD) in Tooele, Utah.
Part and parcel of a grid-connected microgrid, Go Electric’s advanced BESS features the company’s patented AutoLYNC microgrid controller, which will enable TEAD to control and manage multiple AC and DC distributed energy resources. That includes on-site solar power generation.
All that, in turn, will help ensure TEAD is self-sufficient when it comes to power and energy supply, enhance power and energy reliability and resilience, and cost effectively insulate TEAD from volatility of energy prices, Go Electric highlights in a news release.
