AES Energy Storage, a subsidiary of the AES Corp., has announced that it plans to bring an additional 40 MW of energy storage resources to PJM Interconnection, which controls the power grid in the Northeast and Midwest regions of the U.S.

To be located at Dayton Power and Light's Tait generating station, just south of Dayton, Ohio, the AES battery array will provide frequency regulation service to the PJM market, AES says. The 40 MW storage resource will consist of 24 MW from AES inventory, with the remaining 16 MW coming from an existing AES facility, which the company is relocating to Ohio.

When the Tait storage array comes online in September, AES says it will bring the company’s storage resources in PJM to more than 100 MW.
