ENGIE North America Announces Largest Utility-Scale Energy Storage Installation in Massachusetts
ENGIE North America and Holyoke Gas & Electric (HG&E) today announced plans for the largest utility-scale energy storage installation in Massachusetts.
Green Charge, an ENGIE NA subsidiary, will operate the 3 MW (6 MWh) energy storage system at the 5.76 MW-DC Mt. Tom solar farm, which began operation in January of this year adjacent to the former Mt. Tom Power Station. The system will be used to optimize intermittent solar energy and reduce utility capacity costs for HG&E, the system’s customer, while reducing stress on the HG&E distribution system. This project will contribute to rate stabilization for HG&E customers over the next 20 years, Engie said
