Village of Minster Energy Storage Project is Renewable Project of the Year

On Tuesday during Power Generation Week, Troy Miller of S&C Electric and Don Harrod of the Village of Minster accepted the Renewable Energy Project of the Year on behalf of Half Moon Ventures, developer of the project.

The Village of Minster Energy Storage Project in Minster, Ohio is a 7-MW, 3-MWh energy storage system is co-located with a 4.2-MW solar PV plant and is capable of providing multiple revenue streams (that flow to multiple parties) by integrating frequency-regulation services, transmission and distribution deferral, demand response services and voltage support.

The project is one of the largest U.S. facilities of its kind connected through a municipal utility. Half Moon Ventures worked in partnership with S&C Electric Company to supply full EPC on the solar + storage project. Other contractors include LG Chem and Premier Power. Modules were supplied by Canadian Solar, inverters from Ingeteam and the mounting system is from RBI solar.
