The project couples a 1-MW rooftop solar installation with a 1-MW/2-MWh energy storage system to deliver an annual base load of 1.7 MWh in dispatchable clean energy to the town’s ratepayers.
“Sungrow is glad to be part of this Origis solar plus storage project in Massachusetts to push energy storage to the next frontier,” said Mizhi Zhang, the managing director of Sungrow-Samsung SDI. “With the advanced technology and expertise of Greensmith Energy and Origis Energy, this system will certainly help to provide reliable solar power and cost savings for this town.”
“Milestone installations like the Sterling Community Solar + Energy Storage project can serve as a technological benchmark for the region,” John G. Jung, CEO of Greensmith said.
This system will be the first operational solar plus storage project in Massachusetts.
