Con Edison-174 Power Global Battery Project Gets State Regulator Approval
- Jul 15, 2021 8:55 pm GMT
State energy regulators today gave Con Edison and partner 174 Power Global approval to place a large battery system at the site of a former fossil fuel plant near the East River in Astoria, Queens.
The approval by the New York State Public Service Commission is an important step in the development of the East River Energy Storage System on land where the Charles Poletti power plant was.
The system will be able to store and discharge 100 megawatts, or 100 million watts, of electricity. That’s enough to run 100,000 hair dryers or as many as 1 million desktop computers. The system will be able to store enough electricity to power the World Trade Center for about a day.
