TerraSol Energies has installed an ESS Energy Warehouse system at an industrial recycling facility in West Grove, Pennsylvania. The ESS long-duration iron-flow battery system will be integrated with a 115-kW solar array to form a microgrid that will reduce peak electricity demand and provide back-up at Sycamore International, a technology recycling company working to enable a global circular economy .
“This project represents the kind of forward-thinking solution we need to build a decarbonized, resilient energy system,” said US Representative Chrissy Houlahan (PA-06). “On the heels of passing historic energy provisions in the Inflation Reduction Act, I was thrilled to talk about how these paid-for investments will boost American manufacturing and save consumers money on their energy costs.”
“Through collaboration with TerraSol, we identified ESS’ sustainable, American made energy storage technology as the best solution on the market to achieve our climate and business operations goals. This solar and energy storage microgrid delivers backup power when needed to keep our facility fully operational, has a very reasonable return on the capital investment through both electricity production and peak load shaving, and enables our facility to operate comfortably with a net zero carbon footprint, said Steve Figgatt, CEO of Sycamore International.
