Beckjord II Case Study

Beckjord II
2 MW / 800 kWh

The retirement of a coal power plant in New Richmond, Ohio, USA, created a unique opportunity for Duke Energy in 2015. By placing a storage system at the retired coal plant, Duke is able to leverage the available transmission capacity at the site while providing ancillary services in PJM’s (Pennsylvania-New Jersey-Maryland) frequency regulation market — generating a new revenue stream.

Ohio site says: hello storage, goodbye coal!
