S&C Electric to build utility-scale battery storage in Canada

S&C Electric will spearhead a $15-million British Columbia grid-scale storage project using sodium-sulfur batteries intended to reduce costs and outages. BC Hydro chose the Chicago-based company for the project, which will serve the municipalities of Golden and Field, B.C. S&C will install two 1MW sodium-sulfur batteries supplied by NGK Insulators of Japan. The battery in Golden will supplement power. The one in Field will store up to seven hours of power for use during outages.
