The Public Service Company of New Mexico Smart Grid Demonstration Project is a U.S. Department of Energy Smart Grid Demonstration Project which is based in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Overview

Demonstrate how a 2.8MWh Zinc-Bromine flow battery along with a sophisticated control system turns a 500kW solar PV installation. into a reliable, dispatchable distributed generation resource. This hybrid resource will mitigate fluctuations in voltage normally caused by intermittent sources such as PV and wind andsimultaneously store more energy for later use when customer demand peaks.
