 PIDC, Philadelphia’s public-private economic development corporation, partnered with Ameresco for a new 8 MW natural-gas fired peaking plant that anchors one of the largest private microgrids in the United States, located at the Navy Yard in Philadelphia. 

The peaking plant is expected to run during the Navy Yard’s peak demand periods and during intervals of high-cost energy and capacity from the grid. The plant will be capable of providing certain resiliency services and critical support in the event of extended grid outages in addition to shaving the peak load requirements of the microgrid. The project will allow PIDC to: 

  • Reliably meet the projected demand growth needs of the Navy Yard and its tenants 
  • Participate in the PJM Ancillary Service Market 
  • Generate revenues to help offset the cost of the increased capacity

Ameresco was responsible for design, engineering, and build, and the company will provide long-term operation and maintenance.

This new white paper further  explores the projects benefits, technology, and size of the plant project, and more.
