The installation of a Battery Energy Storage System at the Milford Regional Medical Center was executed as an EPC (Engineer-Procure-Construct) project. Milford was looking for resiliency and peak demand reduction for their campus. The new BESS supplements operation of the existing CHP system which included a packaged 800 kW natural gas fired Caterpillar engine and waste heat recovery. The now Hybrid-CHP system will provide operational cost savings and in the event of a power outage, it could supplement the emergency diesel engines to provide power to the hospital. The project was installed in association with the MA-DOER.
