Veridian-Tesla Ajax Energy Storage Project

Veridian's 3-phase smart grid pilot project began with Canada’s first utility installation of Tesla Powerwalls at Veridian’s headquarters in Ajax. A more recent addition of a solar powered carport canopy equipped with Multiple Level 2 Electric Vehicle Chargers and a Level 3 Fast Charger marked the completion of phase 2. The final phase will see the deployment of residential microgrids involving homebuilders, managed and operated by Veridian’s 24/7 System Control Centre and controlled by Opus One’s GridOS Microgrid Energy Management System.

The utility will use the Ajax site for public demonstration of the Tesla Powerwall home energy storage, a solar car port and EV charging. The second residential microgrid will be installed at a home site, also including a Powerwall battery and rooftop solar. The specific components to be used with the residential microgrids are: 10 kW solar generation, 14 kWh lithium-ion battery storage with a hybrid inverter; Level 2 and Level 3 electric vehicle charging – integrated with Veridian’s SCADA system – along with a customer information display at the utility’s Ajax corporate headquarters. In Pickering, the utility will install a 7 kWh Tesla Energy Daily Powerwall with solar and microgrid controls.
