SMLD Projects


SOLAR + STORAGE PROJECT OVERVIEW


The Sterling Community Solar + Energy Storage project represents the first community solar plus storage project in Massachusetts. Announced in January 2018 by Origis Energy USA as a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with Sterling, MA based Sterling Municipal Light Department (SMLD), the project couples a 1 MW ac 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. Residential SMLD customers will be able to participate in a subscription community solar program utilizing the guidelines from the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources (DOER). The project was developed and will be owned by Origis Energy USA. Sterling Community Solar + Energy Storage is also the first operational solar plus storage project in Massachusetts.
