Prevalon Energy secures contract for BESS project from Idaho Power – EQ


In Short : Prevalon Energy has been awarded a contract by Idaho Power for the Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) project.

In Detail : Prevalon Energy LLC (Prevalon Energy) a wholly owned subsidiary of Mitsubishi Power Americas (Mitsubishi Power) announced that it has secured a new contract from Idaho Power for an integrated battery energy storage system (BESS) along with a long-term service agreement.

The project includes a four-hour battery storage with up to 328 MWh from Prevalon which will align with Idaho Power’s plan of integrating more than 5,000MW of energy from wind and solar projects over the next 20 years.

“Prevalon’s Battery Energy Storage Platform includes a complete AC solution including the battery enclosures, inverters, medium voltage transformers, and Energy Management System which will make a significant contribution to Idaho Power’s goal of providing 100% clean energy by 2045,” Prevalon Energy stated in an official release.

The agreement which emerged from a competitive bidding process initiated by Idaho Power is aimed at providing grid resiliency as a net peak solution, enabling the utility to provide reliable power during periods of peak demand. Further, the service agreement includes maintenance as well as remote monitoring.

“We place high value on the partnering mindset and are looking forward to working closely with Idaho Power as they incorporate our end-end integrated battery energy storage solution into their long-range plans to ensure a stable and reliable energy grid for their customers,” said Tom Cornell, President and CEO of Prevalon.

In February this year, Mitsubishi Power rebranded its BESS business into a standalone and legally separate company, Prevalon Energy, to focus on innovation and growth in battery energy storage. Prevalon claims it has implemented over 30 BESS projects and deployed 3GWh of utility-scale projects worldwide.
