EVLO Participates in Renewable Energy Project with Wildstone
EVLO Energy Storage Inc. (EVLO), a subsidiary of Hydro-Québec, announce its participation in a renewable energy project in Summerland, British Columbia.
January 16, 2023. By News Bureau
EVLO is partnering with Wildstone Construction Group (Wildstone) and Skyfire Energy to provide the District of Summerland with its first utility-scale solar facility that combines battery energy storage system (BESS) technology to extend the system's output into the hours when energy demand is highest.
The Summerland project, EVLO's first project in Western Canada, includes a 0.4 MW solar array as well as four EVLO 1000 battery energy storage units and the company's proprietary EMS control system that will provide 4 MWh of storage capacity.
The storage system will enable peak shaving, which will eliminate short-term demand spikes and lower peak loads, reducing overall demand costs.
The solar facility will be geo-ballasted, meaning no ground anchors or concrete will be needed during construction, which will help minimize the carbon intensity of the project. In addition, 80% of the construction team is based locally in the Okanagan.
"We are honored to support this green energy initiative that stems from the District's vision. As our first solar-plus-storage facility in Western Canada, EVLO is proud to work alongside Wildstone to provide our leading energy storage solutions and industry expertise for this first-of-its-kind project for the Summerland region," said Sonia St-Arnaud, President and CEO of EVLO. "As we celebrate our second anniversary, this project builds upon our rapidly growing portfolio as we expand into markets throughout North America and abroad."
"Wildstone is thrilled to bring this solar-plus-storage project to Summerland and enter into the utility renewable energy space with our valued project partners, EVLO and Skyfire Energy," said Mark Melissen, President of Wildstone. "Without their industry expertise and cost-effective solutions, none of this would have been possible."
