Large-scale solar contractor CS Energy announced it has tripled its energy storage installation business. With more than 315 MWh under construction or installed across 28 projects coupled with an additional 500-MWh pipeline, CS Energy has emerged as a leader in the solar + storage field in the United States.
CS Energy’s recent solar + storage project at the Amesbury Landfill in Massachusetts was highlighted in a solar industry publication for project excellence.
The Amesbury Landfill Project is owned and developed by Kearsarge Energy of Boston, in partnership with the City of Amesbury and constructed by CS Energy. At the time of its completion, it was the largest solar + energy storage system in Massachusetts and the first in National Grid territory (part of the state’s SMART program), with 4.5 MW of solar power coupled with a 3.8-MWh lithium-ion storage solution that provides power when needed and stabilizes grid power loads. CS Energy designed, built, and commissioned the solar + battery storage project in under four months.
“We have expanded our Energy Storage team and continue to upgrade the work we do through our safety and quality standards and partnerships with industry-leading integrators. We are well-positioned to continue our growth phase,” said Matthew Skidmore, CEO of CS Energy.
This award-winning project leveraged underutilized municipal land and turned the landfill into a renewable energy producer. The City of Amesbury will see a boost in local construction and maintenance jobs, the generation of tax and lease revenues, and energy credits will reduce municipal spending on electricity. New tax and lease revenues plus energy savings will total $3.6 million over the next 20 years.
