As an active participant in Ontario’s energy transition, Utilities Kingston is supporting a long-duration energy storage project that would store electricity to be used in meeting peak demand. We are proud to be a partner on the proposed Quinte Energy Storage Centre (QESC), that would contribute 500 MW of capacity and eight hours of storage for continuous discharge into the provincial grid.
The project is a partnership with two leading Canadian renewable energy companies: Hydrostor Inc. and Potentia Renewables Inc., along with Utilities Kingston and in collaboration with the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte.
The QESC is an innovative solution that will support Ontario's future energy capacity and reliability requirements, with the construction of an Advanced Compressed Air Energy Storage (A-CAES) facility, located in Greater Napanee, near the Lennox Transformer Station.
