Exelon Generation and Renewable Energy Systems (RES) announced the development of a 10 megawatt (MW) battery storage facility in Clinton County, Ohio. Exelon Generation is the storage facility owner and operator, and RES is the project developer and constructor.

RES will begin construction during the second quarter of 2016, with the battery storage units expected to be fully operational by the end of the year.

Three semi-trailer sized units will be housed next to a substation to allow for easy interconnection to electrical lines within the PJM grid. The entire storage unit footprint is less than one-third of an acre. Construction is expected to be completed by the fall of 2016. The monitoring, dispatch and control of the system will be handled by the RESolve energy platform, a proprietary technology developed by RES. RESolve will manage the system to maximize revenue and minimize battery degradation.
