Construction is underway on two energy storage projects by E.ON SE at its existing West Texas wind farms.
The Germany-based electric services holding company says this latest endeavor is part of the Texas Waves project -- in this case, two 9.9 megawatt short duration storage groups -- to be completed by the end of the year at the Pyron and Inadale wind farms near Roscoe, Texas, about 35 miles west of Abilene.
E.ON says they'll use lithium-iron battery technology for power storage to be integrated into the farms' output.
It's the second and third in the company's series of storage projects that began with a grid connected 10 megawatt battery system that joins with a solar array southeast of Tucson, Arizona, tied into the Tucson Electric Power system.
