Princeton Power Systems is moving from Princeton Service Center to new a headquarters at 3175 Princeton Pike. The move is its second in a year.
The company, which manufactures alternative energy products, already has a warehouse at the Princeton Pike location and expects to move the remainder of its offices within the month. The company moved from its former location in the Sarnoff Center to Princeton Service Center about a year ago.
Meanwhile, Princeton Power announced that it has been selected as the supplier of power inverters by Brooklyn-based Green Charge Networks, which is working on a $95 million Smart Grid Demonstration Project for the U.S. Department of Energy. The project is being led by New York power company Consolidated Edison.
“The multi-year demonstration project aims to identify, develop and test new technologies within the electric delivery system that will help build a smart, more efficient grid,” says a Princeton Power press release.
Green Charge’s work includes the installation and operation of a network of units called GreenStations in the New York City power grid that communicate directly with Con Edison. The GreenStations include multiple inverters from Princeton Power that will function as the interface between the electric grid and the lithium-ion battery system, allowing for smooth transition of power and support to the smart grid.
The GreenStations will help alleviate problems with electric vehicle charging infrastructure being installed that could cause reliability problems in the electric grid.
“GreenStations provide crucial grid services and enable efficient vehicle charging, and our inverters provide the critical link between the batteries, communication interfaces, charging equipment, and the electric grid, making smooth transitions and grid-interactive services possible,” says Darren Hammell, Princeton Power Systems’ COO and executive vice president.
In February, the solar power company announced that it connected a solar array that is generating power on Alcatraz Island. The project is an on-going initiative to supplement and take the place of the diesel generator currently powering the island.
The firm, founded in part by Hammell, a Princeton University graduate, develops patented electric power conversion technology for variable speed motor control, power quality, renewable and distributed generation applications.
