An upgrade to an energy storage facility in Texas could ensure ratepayers get exactly what they pay for, as well as preserve grid stability statewide.

Originally, Duke Energy's Notrees Energy Storage Project was erected to aid in the collection and distribution of renewable energy harvested from local wind turbines. However, since the facility came online, its primary use has been to moderate fluctuating grid power, a task it was not necessarily designed to perform.

Duke will update the project's lead acid batteries to lithium ion technology. These devices allow the Texas grid to ramp up its energy distribution faster to meet any unforeseen increase in demand.
