Energy Storage with RedT
We are pleased to announce that we have teamed up with energy storage firm RedT to install a large storage system on the farm. This will take excess electricity from our 250kw solar array and store it for use when we have higher demand but when our solar isn’t generating. We are looking forward to have the system up and running in the next couple of weeks.
We have installed a 90Kw, 1MWh system that should provide power for 12 hours.
Scott McGregor, CEO, redT energy commented:
We are very privileged to be working with Centrica and The Olde House on this exciting project, which will demonstrate how liquid energy storage machines can be utilised in a commercial environment to create new savings and revenue streams for the site owner and support the distributed energy market in Cornwall.
redT’s machines will demonstrate how distributed energy grids such as this can embrace solar generation by coupling with energy storage to provide reliable, cheap energy all day and night, so called “Firm Solar”. redT’s liquid energy storage machines will also show how this type of technology, storing energy in liquid which doesn’t degrade, can provide the full portfolio of “stacked” services rather than the single functions typically provided by batteries.
