Colorado Mtn. College Solar+ Storage Project Announced (Ind. Report)
AMeresco
Date: 2021-04-09
Framingham, Mass.-based renewable energy and energy efficiency specialist Ameresco is reporting a partnership with Glenwood Springs, Colorado-headquartered Holy Cross Energy (HCE) for a solar and battery energy storage project at Colorado Mountain College's Spring Valley Campus.

Under the agreement, Ameresco will install, maintain and own 4.5MW of solar PV and 15 MWh battery energy storage and sell the generated output to HCE under a long-term PPA.

The project's avoided annual greenhouse gas emissions are expected to be 6,853 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent, which equates to the emissions benefit of removing 1,481 passenger vehicles from the road, or not burning 7,551,050 pounds of coal.

Holy Cross Energy aims to source 100 pct of its electricity from renewable resources by 2030.

Floating Solar Array Slated for Fort Bragg (Ind. Report)
Duke Energy,Ameresco,Fort Bragg
Date: 2020-09-30
In North Carolina, Charlotte-based Duke Energy is reporting it expects to begin construction on a 1.1-MW floating solar facility on Big Muddy Lake at the U.S. Army's Fort Bragg military base. The solar array will be paired with a 2-MW battery energy storage system and supplement power to the military installation from the local grid, providing backup power during electric service outages.

Duke Energy's prime contractor Ameresco will construct the facility, while Fort Bragg will own and operate the system once construction is completed. The project is part of Duke Energy's $36 million energy services contract with Fort Bragg.

Duke Energy owns 40 solar facilities in NC, including the 80-MW Conetoe Solar Facility in Edgecombe County, the 65-MW Warsaw Solar Facility in Duplin County and the 60-MW Monroe Solar Facility in Union County.

Ameresc
Date: 2020-09-18
Framingham, Mass.-based renewable energy and energy efficiency specialist Ameresco reports it has been selected by Woodlands Water -- the central management agency for ten Municipal Utility Districts (MUDs) in Montgomery County, Texas -- to install automatic metering infrastructure (AMI) across the MUD service area .

The AMI project will create a more efficient and effective water distribution system while enhancing transparency for customers tracking water consumption and monthly water service costs.

Ameresco's "turnkey" solution will identify, design, install and monitor a comprehensive water efficiency program that includes the installation of more than 34,000 smart water meters that will seamlessly integrate water consumption data into customers' existing WaterSmart portals.

Ameresco
Date: 2019-06-12
In the Bay State, Framingham-headquartered energy efficiency and renewable energy specialist Ameresco, Inc., reports it has inked an agreement with the Town of Westport (pop. 15,500+-) to install a 622 KW-DC ground-mounted solar panel system at the city's closed landfill.

Ameresco will design, construct, operate and maintain the solar facility at its own expense. Ameresco is leasing the site from the city and making an annual Payment In Lieu of Taxes (PILOT) to the town. The regional utility Eversource will purchase renewable energy from the project which is expected to come online this August.

Ameresco Inks San Antonio AFB Energy Efficiency Contract (Ind. Report)
Ameresco,Mission Solar Energy
Date: 2018-10-24
Framingham, Mass.-headquartered renewables and energy efficiency specialist Ameresco is reporting receipt of a self-funding Energy Savings Performance Contract that includes ongoing operations and maintenance (O&M) services, from the U.S. Defense Logistics Agency Energy for the implementation of a $133.5 million energy resilient infrastructure project at Joint Base San Antonio (JBSA) in Texas.

Under the terms of the contract, Ameresco will provide solar, energy efficiency and reliability upgrades to 900 buildings across five military installations. The company will build a microgrid integrating 20 MW of new onsite energy photovoltaic (PV) assets, 4 MW of gas fired backup generation and 4 MW/8 MWh of battery energy storage.

Under the ESPC contract, more than 14.7 million square feet of buildings will receive; energy and water conservation upgrades designed to cut building energy consumption by 24 pct annually; HVAC management control systems; over 2 million gallons of thermal energy storage; more than 140,000 new LED lighting systems and building envelope improvements. To support energy assurance, Ameresco will install new onsite distributed energy assets capable of islanding from the electric utility, including a combined heat and power (CHP) system comprised of nine microturbines for a total capacity of 585 kW, 4-MW of natural gas-fired standby generation and an 11.7-MW groundmount solar PV array at the Security Hill Landfill at Lackland Air Force Base and over 5 MW of roof-mount PV at Fort Sam Houston.

Ameresco selected San Antonio-based Mission Solar Energy to manufacture and provide over 54,200,370 W of "Buy-American" compliant solar modules to be used in the project. The ESPC is guaranteed to provide $8.7 million in annual energy savings to JBSA. (Source: Ameresco, Solar Power, 22 Oct., 2018) Contact: Ameresco, Nicole A. Bulgarino, Exec.
