Sungrow Partners with Greensmith to Deliver Solar Plus Storage Technology to Massachusetts

Sungrow recently announced to work with Greensmith Energy, a part of the Wärtsilä technology group, to provide an advanced energy storage system to Origis Energy USA in Sterling, Massachusetts.

The project couples a 1MW rooftop solar installation with a 1MW/2MWh energy storage system to deliver an annual base load of 1.7MWh in dispatchable clean energy to the town’s ratepayers.

“Sungrow is glad to be part of this Origis solar plus storage project in Massachusetts to push energy storage to the next frontier,” said Mizhi Zhang, the Managing Director of Sungrow-Samsung SDI, “with the advanced technology and expertise of Greensmith Energy and Origis Energy, this system will certainly help to provide reliable solar power and cost savings for this town.”

John G. Jung, CEO of Greensmith said, “Milestone installations like the Sterling Community Solar + Energy Storage project can serve as a technological benchmark for the region.”

This system will be the first operational solar plus storage project in Massachusetts.
