Project description

Endurant Energy worked with Con Edison to demonstrate a front-of-the-meter (FTM) battery storage business model we created for the Reforming the Energy Vision (REV) strategy. The 5-year demonstration project shows how customer-sited, FTM, third-party owned batteries can provide benefits to both the utility (through installation in constrained network areas) and customers (through regular lease payments – energy bills are unchanged). The team installed four 1 MW/1 MWh batteries at host sites in three NYC boroughs. Each site receives regular lease payments for use of their land. Con Edison will be able to call for the system’s discharge during their network’s critical peak times, avoiding the significant capex required for sub-station upgrades. When Con Edison does not call for the systems, the batteries will participate in available NYISO wholesale markets, sharing proceeds with Con Edison. Endurant Energy recently purchased, and now owns these projects.
