Standard Solar installs New York’s largest community solar + storage project
New York’s largest community solar + storage project nears completion. Standard solar energy developed, installed and financed the 6.9 MW community distributed generation project in Lenox. The Lenox Community Solar Project is made of 17,966 modules attached to fixed-tilt and single-axis tracker structures and has a 20 MWh battery.
The Lenox CDG or community solar + storage system allows hundreds of area subscribers, homeowners and businesses who otherwise would not have access to solar energy, to take advantage of the power and savings of renewable energy. The system is expected to generate 5,933.00 MWh in its first year of operation.
“Community solar with battery storage is an extremely effective method of bringing the benefits of clean energy to as many people as possible while transforming the U.S. electrical grid,” said Daryl Pilon, director of business development at Standard Solar. “The Lenox Community Solar Project is the kind of high-impact asset that aligns with Standard Solar’s goal of scaling up renewables to help Americans lower their electric bills, innovate the energy industry, and secure the future of our planet. .”
The system will help National Grid meet the requirements of the New York Clean Energy Standard to generate 70% of the state’s electricity from renewable sources by 2030.
