Project was updated with Lithium-ion batteries in Q3 2017.

Younicos will install a 3 MW Advanced Lead Acid energy storage system on the Kodiak Island grid to respond to grid voltage and frequency fluctuations from local wind generation. The energy storage will act as a "bridge" between the wind and hydro resources, allowing KEA (http://www.kodiakelectric.com) to increase reliable wind generation from 4.5 MW to 9 MW. The Control System's architecture is designed such that the utility can add the service known as Ramp Control later in time if need be.
