Honeywell to provide 20-MW energy storage system paired with New Mexico solar project
Honeywell announced it will supply Hecate Energy with an Energy Storage System (ESS) for a solar project located in Northern New Mexico. When completed in mid-2022, the 50-MW solar project will be capable of supplying enough electricity to power up to 16,000 average New Mexican homes for a year. The project is a part of an initiative by the Public Service Company of New Mexico and will help meet the state’s decarbonization goals.
Honeywell will deliver a 20-MW ESS combined with the Experion Energy Control System to form a battery-powered platform that integrates asset monitoring, distributed energy resource management, supervisory control and analytics functionality. Collectively, these capabilities will enable Hecate Energy to accurately forecast and optimize energy costs at the site and ultimately support users having access to reliable and cost-effective clean energy.
Honeywell’s ESS is backed by Honeywell performance and outcome-based guarantees which include predictable and consistent costs, improved uptime and “revenue stacking” capabilities, allowing the asset owner to utilize the ESS for more than one use-case application including peak shaving, backup power generation and demand response programs.
“We chose Honeywell for this landmark project because of their depth of knowledge and decades of expertise,” said Alex Pugh, Hecate’s project manager. “We believe in collaborative relationships with the clients and communities we serve, and Honeywell will work closely with us to deliver carbon-free energy to the people of New Mexico.”
