US-headquartered Standard Solar has acquired the Knox Solar + Storage project from developer EDF Renewables North America.
The project consists of 1.5MW of solar and 2MWh of battery storage. It will directly supply the Acton Water Districtâ€™s microfiltration treatment plant in Massachusetts.
The system is expected to generate approximately 1,872 MWh of clean energy each year, enough to power nearly 200 Massachusetts homes for one year and offset the carbon dioxide equivalent of burning more than 700 tons of coal in one year.
This project is the second solar installation Standard Solar owns and operates for the Acton Water District. The first is the 4.7 MW solar and 4 MWh storage Lawsbrook Project, also developed by EDF Renewables. The system was constructed on land owned by the Acton Water District, previously disturbed from gravel extraction and part of the W.R. Grace Superfund Site.
