Bay State's Largest Energy Storage System Unveiled (Ind. Report)
ENGIE North America
Date: 2018-09-26
ENGIE North America an municipally-owned Holyoke Gas & Electric Utility (HG&E) are reporting the launch of Massachusetts' largest utility-scale energy storage system at the Mt. Tom Solar Farm in Holyoke, Massachusetts. ENGIE Storage Services -- fka Green Charge LLC -- will operate the 3-megawatt GridSynergy(trade; system, which will be integrated into the largest community solar farm in the state at a location adjacent to the former Mt. Tom Power Station.

GridSynergy will provide grid stability by responding quickly to electricity demand fluctuations, allow for the increased use of clean energy, and reduce peak load burden on the existing electrical distribution system.

According to ENGIE North America, nearly 100 pct of its power generation portfolio is low carbon or carbon free. Globally, ENGIE is the largest independent power producer in the world, with operations in 70 countries and 1,000 researchers in 11 R&D centers.

Date: 2017-10-06
ENGIE subsidiary Green Charge Networks reports it will develop and operate a 3 MW battery energy storage system at the 5.76-MW Mt. Tom Solar array adjacent to the former Mt. Tom Power Station in Massachusetts.

The system, which could be the largest utility-scale energy storage system in the Bay State when completed in April 2018, will deliver energy to Holyoke Gas & Electric (HG&E). The system will be used to optimize intermittent solar energy and reduce utility capacity costs for HG&E while reducing stress on the grid. HG&E was awarded a $475,000 MA Department of Energy Resources Grant to contract with, schedule, measure, and analyze the energy storage system.
