Delorean Power LLC and Massachusetts public power utility Groton Electric Light Department on Nov. 8 unveiled two battery energy storage facilities. One project will be located at a GELD substation, while the other one will be located on the grounds of the town’s newly constructed elementary school.
The school project will also provide emergency backup power to the school complex which will be protected from severe weather and other grid-disruptive events without drawing on conventional diesel generators.
The energy storage systems will each be 2 megawatts/9 megawatt-hours and are expected to be operational in mid-2024.
Delorean will leverage its analytics, finance, operations, and engineering experience to own and operate the projects.
“These energy storage systems will help the Town and Groton ratepayers save money when power is the most expensive as well as lower the Town’s carbon footprint,” said GELD Manager Kevin Kelly. “We are eager to partner with Delorean on these projects and possible future projects.”
