Agilitas Energy completes 7.3-MW solar/9.5-MWh storage project in SMART program in Massachusetts
Agilitas Energy has completed construction of a 7.3-MW solar/9.5 MWh storage system in Auburn, Massachusetts, which is classified as a community solar project under the state Solar Massachusetts Renewable Target (SMART) program.
The company says several hundred organizations, including: Sturdy Memorial Hospitalhave signed long-term power purchase agreements for the project that guarantee energy savings for the next two decades.
Agilitas Energy has also acquired a build-ready, front-of-the-meter PV and energy storage project in Hopkinton, Massachusetts. The 5.8 MW solar / 9 MWh storage project will be located next to 45 hectares of open space for permanent conservation. Agilitas will also donate more than $10,000 towards the construction of a parking lot to support access to the trail network on site.
“Programs like SMART are making a noticeable difference in enabling cost-effective solar development, and we are confident that these projects will help bring predictable, low-cost, clean energy to the communities that need it — other states would should try to replicate what Massachusetts has done,” said Barrett Bilotta, president of Agilitas Energy. “In that sense, we are proud of the solar and storage projects we have built in our home state and throughout New England, and with our recent capital raising, we look forward to replicating our success with utilities and municipalities across the US.”
