Pole-mounted PowerCache® 30kVA/85kWh will enable the Distribution Network and Energy Company to serve the community with more renewable, stable and ultimately cheaper power

On 11/02/2020, United Energy, a Victorian Distribution Network Service Provider and PowerTec, in an Australian first, have commissioned the first of two prototype Pole-mounted Grid Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) in the suburb of Highett, Bayside area, Melbourne. The PowerTec PowerCache® BESS enables the Distribution Network and the Energy Companies to serve the community with more flexible and economical ways to use solar energy. The 30kVA/85hWh BESS operates mid-circuit of a 50-75 consumer LV feeder and provides voltage control, phase-balancing, load/generation peak lopping and smart time-of use solar energy shifting. Its most frequent use case, in the absence of any technical constraints on the network, is participation in Electricity Market Services, controlled by an energy company.
