Xtreme Power’s Dynamic Power Resource (DPR) battery storage system was purchased by Kaua’i Island Utility Cooperative (KIUC) for its 1.5MW Koloa substation. The utility-scale DPR system will be installed at the solar PV plant and is expected to also help with the effects of a 3MW solar PV project that will also feed into Koloa.
“With this project, Xtreme Power will once again demonstrate the ease of cost-effectively utilizing abundant, clean energy without a major infrastructure overhaul,” said Carlos Coe, CEO of Xtreme Power. “We commend the Kaua’i Island Utility Cooperative for its progressive thinking and intelligent measures to overcome variability challenges when implementing renewables into Kaua’i’s grid.”
This is the first instance where Xtreme Power has sold its system directly to a utility and, once completed, will bring Xtreme Power’s total installed projects to 30MW in Hawaii alone. The project is anticipated to be completed by the third quarter.
