Standard Solar is nearing completion on the community distributed generation project it developed, installed, and funded in Lenox, New York, the largest in the state.
The Lenox Community Solar Project – featuring a 20 MWh DC-coupled battery directly charged to 17,966 fixed-tilt and single-axis tracker solar modules – is projected to generate 5,933.00 MWh in the first year of operation and reduce annual carbon offset by an estimated 264,931,764 pounds of coal burned.
“Community solar with battery storage is an extremely effective method for bringing the benefits of clean energy to as many people as possible while also transforming the U.S. electric 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 to scale renewables to help Americans lower their electric bills, innovate the energy industry, and ensure the future of our planet.”
The project will allow hundreds of subscribers who are otherwise unable to access solar to benefit from clean, renewable energy.
