The IFB system installed at Stone Edge Farm has a 60kWh energy capacity with a 10kW, 480VAC, 3-phase interface. Self-contained in a 20′ ISO shipping container, the IFB was easily sited in an environmentally sensitive area, given its small footprint and non-toxic, non-flammable chemistry. ESS’ Flow Battery supports the requirements of the microgrid to supply power at night, for irrigation or hydrogen generation, and to smooth out intermittencies of solar on the microgrid.
ESS is taking orders for their IFB for commercial, utility, and military customers and is ramping to volume production of the 100kW/800kWh, a larger IFB system that will address both behind-the-meter, and front of the meter utility scale multi-MWh applications.
