Washington Post: Southern Company to Unveil Energy Storage Project

Southern Company and the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) are unveiling an energy storage “demonstration project” in Cedartown, Ga., that pairs a 1 megawatt lithium ion battery with a 1 megawatt solar photovoltaic installation. Kimberly Greene, executive vice president and chief operating officer at Southern Company, told the Washington Post in a statement that the company and EPRI “are examining the kind of battery storage technology that could help shape America’s future. The development of cost-effective energy storage is important to delivering the full potential of renewable energy for the benefit of the families we serve.”
