Project Summary:

Detroit Edison will design, construct, and install an aggregated 1 MW Community Energy Storage (CES) System in their service territory at the HAGER substation in Michigan to demonstrate the potential of CES systems to strengthen grid reliability. The performance data of the CES devices and control systems under in-service operating conditions will be analyzed and used to identify gaps and facilitate how the devices can be standardized for use across the U.S. The project will also integrate the utility-owned 500 kW solar system to the energy storage device; provide proof of concept testing for an integrated, centralized communication system; and test the use of secondary-use Electric Vehicle (EV) batteries as CES devices.
