Holtsville Energy Storage, a 110 MW, four-hour, battery energy storage facility in Brookhaven, New York, has received construction and operational approval by the New York State Public Service Commission.
Holtsville Energy Storage, which will be developed by a company of the same name, will be located on three land parcels – covering six acres – on the southwest corner of Expressway Drive South and Morris Avenue.
The facility will connect to Long Island Power Authorityâ€™s (LIPA’s) existing 8 kW West Bus Substation. â€œWhile a utility or large energy user may purchase the output of the facility, a significant portion of the energy itself will flow to the nearest energy users,â€ a statement said.
Holtsville Energy Storage has said the project has the potential to create approximately 150 local jobs during construction, â€œplus some long-term jobsâ€ once operational.
