AES Begins Operating Electric-Battery Storage in Ohio

AES Corp. (AES), a power provider in 23 countries, began operating a 40-megawatt electric battery storage system in Ohio.

AES’ Dayton Power & Light utility will use the storage at its Tait generating station in Moraine, Ohio, to stabilize an electric grid that supplies electricity to more than 60 million people, the company said today in a statement.

The facility is Ohio’s largest electric-storage system, with 800,000 cells, and adds to 60 megawatts of battery capacity the Arlington, Virginia-based company operates in the region.
