Florida Power & Light (FPL) last week said that it has installed a battery system at its Citrus Solar Energy Center that will allow the utility to get more energy from solar panels at the project.

The new system has a 4 MW/16 MWh storage capacity via multiple batteriesyftzfyezwzuefreywsedvrac integrated into the operations of the Citrus solar project.

According to FPL, the new solar-plus-storage system features “DC-coupled” batteries that can harness solar energy at times of peak sunlight that otherwise might be lost. The utility said that, during those peaks, a solar plant might generate more power than its inverters can process, resulting in some energy being lost—or “clipped”—by the inverter. The DC-coupled system can capture
