Go Electric Inc. Awarded $1.7M Contract to Deliver Battery Energy Storage System to Tooele Army Depot
Go Electric Inc., a provider of advanced energy solutions, today announced it has been awarded a $1.7 million contract by Perini Management Services, Inc. (PMSI) to provide a 1MW/1MWh grid-tied battery storage system to the Tooele Army Depot (TEAD) in Tooele, Utah. The Go Electric system will serve as a critical component of the facility’s self-sufficient microgrid, providing the depot with energy security and resiliency.
For the project, PMSI will interconnect Go Electric’s new generation of battery energy storage system (BESS) to TEAD’s existing 46 kV line. Go Electric’s advanced BESS includes its 1MW lithium-ion battery and its patented AutoLYNC® microgrid controller, enabling TEAD to manage and optimize multiple alternating current (AC) and direct current (DC) distributed energy resources.
Go Electric’s BESS solution provides TEAD with peak-shaving and black start capabilities, reactive and uninterruptible power supply, and utility voltage and frequency support. Along with the energy storage system, Go Electric will provide engineering and design services, and will support commissioning of TEAD’s microgrid system.
“This is Go Electric’s second major military microgrid project, and projects like these are critical to advancing and validating our technology and project performance in the defense sector,” said Tony Soverns, Chief Technology Officer of Go Electric. “We are delighted to be part of these efforts to provide energy security and resiliency to critical military facilities and support our American Service Members.”
