ZBB commissions co-op installation

ZBB Energy Corporation has announced the commissioning of a ‘first ever’ ZBB EnerSection 125kW bi-directional inverter with lead-acid batteries in a utility-owned demonstration facility with onsite solar PV and wind turbine generation. The system includes ZBB EnerSection DC inputs for regulating power flows to and from four lead-acid battery sets.

The installation will demonstrate the numerous economic, operational, strategic and environmental value streams accomplished by prioritising and optimising renewables in unison with peak grid usage in distributed locations, says the company.

“The battery bank cycling will reduce our system losses, reduce our peak demand charges and improve efficiency on our system,” explained Warren Jones, distribution engineer on the project for Lower Valley Electric Co-op, the customer.
