Stratford Festival Hydro

Saturn Power has co-developed and is currently constructing several utility scale Lithium-Ion and Flow Battery projects in North America.

We have partnered with Festival Hydro to build the largest battery storage facility in Canada, marking the first steps towards creating a micro-grid in Stratford.

Under construction in Wright Business Park, the battery storage facility is on an acre of land next to the existing Festival Hydro transformer station. Using Powin Energy’s Stack140 energy storage system, the facility will house four lithium ion battery cell arrays – two with a capacity of two Megawatts, and two with a capacity of 2.4 Megawatts.

Together, the battery cell arrays will provide a storage capacity of 8.8 Megawatts, which translates to 40.8 Megawatt hours of available energy – enough to supply more than 10,000 homes with electricity for an hour.

Construction of the facility is complete, and will be comercially operational within Q1 of 2018.
