Located in a small coastal town with a population of 2,000 people is the first non wires alternative (NWA) application of battery-based storage for utility infrastructure in the US, using advanced lead batteries. Together with Convergent and other partners, C&D Technologies helped supply a 0.5 MW energy storage NWA solution to support Boothbay’s electricity grid, which experiences increased peak load during the summer’s major tourism surge.

Since 2015, the system continues to maintain 100% uptime during peak summer months, demonstrating the reliability and responsiveness of energy storage as a utility resource.
