S&C Electric Company Inc. Key Developments

S&C Electric Company Secures Contract from Ergon Energy to Provide 20 S&C PureWave(R) Community Energy Storage Systems

S&C Electric Company announced it was awarded a contract by Ergon Energy, an Australian utility, to provide 20 S&C PureWave(R) Community Energy Storage Systems for the utility's Grid Utility Support Systems (GUSS). The storage systems will be used to improve the power reliability and efficiency on constrained single-wire high-voltage distribution lines, commonly known as single wire earth return (SWER) lines. Ergon Energy will also be using S&C's IntelliTeam(R) DEM Distributed Energy Management System to optimize and control the fleet of CES units throughout their SWER network.

S&C Energy Storage System to Provide Grid Support for PJM

S&C Electric Company announced the deployment of six 25-kW PureWave Community Energy Storage systems at its global headquarters in Chicago. The 150-kW energy storage system provides fast-response frequency regulation for the PJM market. Ancillary grid services, such as frequency regulation, are crucial for maintaining the stability and reliability of the power system. Frequency regulation is used to minimize the mismatch between generation and loads by quickly adjusting generation output to maintain the grid's ideal frequency -- 60 Hz in parts of the world and 50 Hz in others. Historically, fossil-fueled fired generating plants have provided a majority of such services, but response times often exceeded 20 minutes. S&C is selling its CES-stored electricity to PJM through Intelligent Generation, which offers a networked software platform that facilitates optimization and bidding of distributed energy resources into wholesale electricity markets.

Green States Energy Awards S&C Electric Company a Contract to Connect 3.6-MW Solar Project to Massachusetts Grid

S&C Electric Company announced an $11 million project with Green States Energy to design and build a 3.6 MW solar photovoltaic farm in Devens, Mass. This project will be the third plant built by S&C for GSE and will leverage a standardized electrical system design to connect the plant to the grid. The interconnection substation includes an integrated switching and control solution based on S&C's field-proven System VI(TM) Switchgear. The complete solution eliminates the need for a separate control house in the substation and associated civil works, and use of standardized designs will also reduce engineering and installation costs for the substation.
