Penetanguishene Microgrid - PowerStream

PowerStream, in partnership with the Korea Electric Power Corporation (KEPCO), officially launched a utility-scaled microgrid with the capacity to provide several hours of backup power supply for approximately 400 customers residing or owning a business in Penetanguishene. This microgrid is also helping to reinforce the existing grid by increasing resiliency and operational flexibility.

Installed adjacent to PowerStream's Robert Street Municipal Substation located east of the town's Main Street and connected to a distribution powerline, the system consists of a 750 kilowatt (kW) Power Conversion System, 500 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of stationary batteries, a number of automatic switches, voltage regulation devices and other grid automation equipment.
