Duke Energy Ohio has withdrawn an application before the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio under which the utility had been seeking approval of a battery storage pilot project to install a lithium ion battery, rated for approximately 3.95MW/8.9MWH, adjacent to the existing McMann substation in Union Township, Ohio.
"Duke Energy Ohio, Inc., the applicant in the above-referenced proceeding [Docket 19-2223-EL-UNC], hereby withdraws its
application in the said proceeding," Duke said in a filing in the case
As previously reported, Duke had originally proposed that, "If authorized by the Commission, the battery will also participate in the PJM regulation market when it is not otherwise needed to reduce peak load on the circuit."
Furthermore, Duke had originally said in its initial application that, "Duke Energy Ohio may potentially provide other services to PJM in the future as a result of the implementation of FERC Order 841 [electric storage participation in wholesale markets]."
