Following news yesterday of the first grid-scale solar-plus-storage system on the Hawaiian island of Molokai, two more modestly-sized projects show the potential diversity of applications for energy storage in the US state. That project will be used to mitigate peak demand issues by making the solar power stored onsite dispatchable at times when demand is high and solar irradiance is low, aimed at locking in low energy prices for local residents while helping integrate renewables and lower emissions from burning imported fossil fuels, namely diesel.
The system is expected to be up and running early next year.
The solar PV will be combined with a kWh energy storage system. Meanwhile, the utility Hawaiian Electric is working together with EnSync to ensure that the system can be interconnected to the grid in accordance with PUC rules.
