Utility-scale energy project installer Strata Clean Energy has completed installation of an AiON-ESS Energy Series system from LS Energy Solutions for Green Mountain Power in Vermont, the first commercial deployment of the product.

The project with Strata and GMP includes a total of 12 AiON-ESS enclosures divided between two 4.99-MW/10-MWh projects in Vermont. Each UL 9540-certified AiON-ESS unit is rated at 830 kW/2.2 MWh.

"We’re thrilled to announce the first commercial installation of the AiON-ESS Energy Series," said Steve Fludder, CEO of LS Energy Solutions. "The deployment with Strata Clean Energy and Green Mountain Power shows how the AiON-ESS enables peak shaving for asset owners and utilities, which benefits the customers of GMP. We’re pleased to be working with fellow clean energy partners in Strata and GMP, and we look forward to continuing our partnership."

"The AiON-ESS Energy Series makes a great addition to our battery storage portfolio," said Joshua Rogol, President of Strata Clean Energy. "Having an energy storage system that includes all components packaged into one containerized system benefits developers and utilities seeking a straightforward way to deploy energy storage. With the units supplied by LS Energy Solutions, we’re able to help Green Mountain Power meet its clean energy goals and build a smarter grid."

Though the Vermont projects mark the first deployment of the AiON-ESS Energy Series, the system's companion unit, the Power Series, is currently installed in New Jersey and Maryland. Whereas the AiON-ESS Power Series is designed for one-hour storage durations in a 1-MW/1-MWh block, the Energy Series offers two- to six-hour durations in units that scale up to 3 MWh. Both units in the AiON-ESS family are designed and assembled in the United States and provide scalable all-in-one AC energy storage solutions that combine the batteries from tier-1 suppliers, LS-ES's modular string inverters, and required cooling in a single containerized unit.
