LCG, October 12, 2021--Georgia Power announced that it has received approval from the Georgia Public Service Commission (PSC) to build, own, and operate a new battery energy storage system (BESS). The new Mossy Branch Battery Facility project design calls for a 65 MW/260 MWh system that will be part of a larger, 80-MW BESS portfolio approved in Georgia Power's 2019 Integrated Resource Plan (IRP).

Georgia Power’s Renewable Development Director stated, “It is an exciting time to be working on new ways to maximize the value of sustainable, renewable energy and the addition of battery storage complements and enhances the value of renewable generation. Developing storage technologies of this magnitude will help us to continue meeting our customers' needs. The Mossy Branch project will help the company evaluate the value and benefits battery storage provides to the electric system, as well as learn how to optimize operation and maintenance of the BESS facilities."

The Mossy Branch Battery Facility site is located on 2.5-acres near Columbus, Georgia. The BESS will be designed as a standalone unit that will connect to and charge directly from the electric transmission grid.

Georgia Power selected Wärtsilä to provide this new facility's Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) services.
