Chicago — Sunverge announced it has been selected by to enhance feeder-level system reliability and resiliency, and reduce the duration and frequency of ComEd customer outages with a battery energy storage solution.
The front-of-the-meter residential project provides ComEd with an alternative to traditional distribution-level grid hardening solutions.
“ComEd has distinguished itself as an innovator and is one of the most reliable electricity delivery companies in the nation, so we’re honoured to partner with them on this initiative,” said Martin Milani, CEO of Sunverge Energy.
Unlike typical residential battery applications, this project focuses on an innovative new approach: locating the energy storage systems in front of the residential meter and integrating tightly with utility distribution SCADA.
This application will result in a new technique where the systems are not installed on the customer premises and traditional solutions are not good economically, technically or locational.
The learnings and standards developed from the project will be scaled for large-scale utility-owned front-of-the-meter assets to enhance residential feeder reliability and resiliency. The project is expected to be completed in 2022.
