Project Description

PUBLIC SERVICE ELECTRIC AND GAS COMPANY (PSE&G), CALDWELL WASTEWATER TREATMENT PLANT SOLAR STORAGE SYSTEM: #ESNA_PSEG

West Caldwell, NJ

Rated Power: 250kW
Rated Capacity: 1000kWh
Technology Type: Array
Powered by: Public Service Electric and Gas Company (PSE&G)
Services Provided: Frequency Regulation, Onsite Renewable Energy Shifting, Resiliency

The Caldwell Wastewater Treatment Plant Solar Storage System combines a 2,682 panel, 896 kilowatt-dc solar system with a 1 megawatt -hour Eos Energy zinc hybrid cathode battery storage system. The solar system provides electricity directly to the grid and can power about 165 homes annually. In the event of an extended power outage, the combined solar and battery system works with the treatment plant’s existing diesel back-up generators. During the day, the solar panels recharge the batteries and help power the wastewater treatment plant and at night, the batteries help keep the facility running. The system helps the Caldwell plant operationally because the combination of the new solar storage system and the existing back-up generators will allow the Caldwell plant to operate for as long as 10 days without outside power. This will help keep wastewater from the facility out of local waterways. The solar storage system can also participate in PJM’s frequency regulation market. The Caldwell Wastewater Treatment Plant Solar Storage System is part of a three megawatt-dc carve-out in PSE&G’s Solar 4 All program dedicated to developing projects that integrate solar with other technologies to reduce the impact solar has on the grid or increase reliability and grid resiliency for critical facilities during prolonged power outages.
