Axion Power International Inc. has received a follow-on purchase order for four of its PowerCube energy storage systems from its partner, a New Jersey-based solar installer of commercial and residential systems.

The $1.1 million purchase order includes lead-carbon batteries, racks, wiring, a data communication system and supporting services. Each of the PowerCubes will be tied to solar arrays that produce between 500 kW and 700 kW of power, and the PowerCubes will each provide 500 kW – up and down – for frequency regulation.

The storage units will provide storage for energy created by a commercial solar panel system and service the frequency regulation market on the PJM grid.
