BOSTON, Oct. 8, 2019 -- Sungrow, the global leading inverter solution supplier for renewables, announced that it has signed a contract to supply its fully integrated Energy Storage System (ESS) ST4200KWh-2000 to a 15MW/32MWh project in Massachusetts.
The project will participate in ISO-New England wholesale markets
after completion, and is one of the first solar-plus storage offerings
to contribute to the Solar Massachusetts Renewable Target (SMART)
Program, setting the benchmark for Massachusetts' solar-plus-storage projects.
The future-proof Sungrow ESS solution ST4200KWh-2000, which
integrates separate PCS and Li-ion battery, energy management system,
local controller, HVAC and FSS in a 40-foot container, will bring
together the plant's production processes within a one-stop-shop to
allow flexible transportation and on-site installation, as well as
ensure unified communication, system safety and optimal system
The combined solar and storage portfolio, is operated by Stem, the US energy firm, and owned by Syncarpha Capital, LLC, a New York-based
private equity firm. "We are happy to partner with Sungrow which has a
trusted 20 plus year track record in this industry for the first batch
of SMART projects and many more in the future. We felt strongly about
Sungrow Samsung SDI's product offering, especially with the fully
integrated concept, which really helped us reduce the LCOE and
operational costs," said John Carrington CEO of Stem Inc.
"As a technical leader in power conversion, Sungrow offers innovative
solar-plus storage solutions that are future-focused. We have already
completed prestigious projects in the U.S. and across the globe,
connecting renewables to the grid to bring sustainable and reliable
power to people," said Hank Wang, President of Sungrow Americas.
