VIRIDITY PROVIDES BATTERY AS A SERVICE TO ACUA

Viridity Energy Solutions Inc. (Viridity), an Ormat Company, has contracted with the Atlantic County Utility Authority (ACUA), and vendors, Johnson Controls and Rettew Field Services, Inc. (Rettew), to provide a Battery Storage as a Service (BSAAS) system to ACUA’s wastewater treatment plant in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

This progressive utility plant also includes a 7.5 MW wind farm, 500 kW of solar PV, and a fleet of electric vehicle charging stations. ACUA provides weekly public tours of its “next-generation” waste water treatment plant, highlighting its low power and carbon footprint as one of its core principles.

Under the agreement, Viridity will provide to ACUA Viridity’s market leading BSAAS solution that combines an advanced, fully integrated battery energy storage system with Viridity’s VPowerTM energy management and optimization software, as well as operational services for a period of 20 years with no capital outlay by ACUA. Furthermore, ACUA will receive a portion of the utility bill savings created through peak shaving over the term of the agreement. Viridity will serve as the general contractor and engineering procurement and construction (EPC) lead and will design and install the battery energy storage system utilizing a battery storage system from Johnson Controls and Engineering and Construction services from Rettew.

Viridity will own and operate the battery energy storage system to create energy savings for ACUA with an emissions-free solution and to provide services to the grid, including ancillary services in the PJM market. The system was installed and began market operations in Q1 2018.
