Engie North America has bought a four-project portfolio in Massachusetts that comprises 25MW of solar and 22MWh of energy storage.
It is one of a “number” of solar-plus-storage portfolios that will be deployed by Engie under the state’s solar incentive programme, the Solar Massachusetts Renewable Target (SMART), according to a company release.
The new projects are expected to be operational by the second half of 2020 and run for 20 years. The energy storage systems will use Engie’s GridSynergy software platform and will operate in the ISO New England wholesale markets.
The new projects will add to Engie's purchase of a 19MW/38MWh solar-plus-storage pipeline in the New England state in July.
