Wärtsilä will supply AEP OnSite Partners with its next generation energy storage system to serve the City of Martinsville, Virginia, USA.

The City of Martinsville, located in Southern Virginia, has its own distribution service and operates its own system, which serves approximately 13,000 people and businesses. The project would minimize the city’s transmission and storage peak values measured in megawatts (MW) within the territory of the Appalachian Power Regional Transmission Operator (RTOE) and the PJM Regional Independent System Operator (ISO) system.
