Switchgear and substation power systems work together to deliver electric power and reduce potential downstream faults ensuring safe electrical power.
With the power utility landscape changing in terms of both architecture and methods of generation, the need for reliable energy storage solutions is growing. Substations are evolving and adapting to support new and varied generation sources including renewables. This change is creating unique energy storage requirements that support the variable nature of the renewable generation sources.
Power Solutions provides both products and services to allow switchgear and substations to operate safely and continuously. We are continually working with our vendor partners to advance our energy storage solutions to offer greater reliability, longer service life and reduced maintenance.
Our national footprint and local service groups support the installation, maintenance and end-of-life recycling processes for turn-key switchgear, control and power generation support.
Power Solutions offers customized substation battery systems to meet the requirements of most facilities. We can help configure the entire substation battery systems including batteries of various chemistries, indoor racks, indoor or outdoor enclosures, battery chargers, spill containment and battery monitoring. In partnership with best-in-class manufacturers, our battery systems are custom designed to comply with the project specifications. Our service network also offer installation and maintenance for a complete turn-key solution.
