Our Next Energy to Supply Energy Storage for Berkshire Hathaway Project in West Virginia

Electric vehicle battery startup Our Next Energy (ONE) has been chosen to provide energy storage units for a $500m solar-powered manufacturing site in West Virginia owned by Berkshire Hathaway Energy. ONE will supply its new Aries Grid units, which use lithium iron phosphate battery technology, to store solar-generated electricity during the day for use on the industrial site at night. A factory to assemble the units will be built on the same site, with ONE investing $22m in the facility. The project is the first major undertaking for ONE’s Aries Grid unit, which launched in February.
