Indiana Regulators Approve Battery Storage Project at Site of Coal-Fired Plant

The Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission recently approved a stand-alone battery energy storage system in Pike County, Ind., which will be located at AES Indiana’s coal-fired Petersburg Generating Station.

The grid-connected storage system will provide 200 megawatts of installed capacity and 800 megawatt-hours of dispatchable energy.

This system is expected to be operational by December 2024 and online during the MISO 2024-2025 winter season.

AES Indiana’s total renewable and energy storage capacity is expected to grow from 400 MW currently in operation to 2,200 MW by 2027.
