The new lithium batteries aim to ensure the power generated by the solar panels can flow as and when needed, with the technology integrating with the grid via S&C's Pure Wave Community Energy Storage System. The pilot aims to find out if it is cheaper to install energy storage technology, than to replace transmission cables, with the project proving the first to be funded by the LCN that places batteries close to customers' homes, rather than at the point of use or at a substation.
