URL More about Horizon Energy Solar Farm Storage System - Sonnedix / Aquion Energy
Independent Power Producer (IPP) Sonnedix connected a 1.25 MWh liquid battery to a 16 MW solar farm in Puerto Rico in what is one of the first near grid-independent storage projects for the region. The Aqueous Hybrid Ion battery supplied by Aquion Energy is powered by a separate 250 kWp solar PV array. It will provide 100% of the overnight operational energy requirements for the 16 MW Horizon Energy solar plant in Salinas. This energy storage installation will be controlled using software developed by Geli (Growing Energy Labs Inc.). The power controls will come from FlexGen Power Systems.
