Massachusetts water supplier adds second solar + storage project

The Acton Water District in Acton, Massachusetts, will soon add an additional 1.5-MW solar and 2-MWh battery storage project to its cost-saving clean energy portfolio. Standard Solar acquired the Knox Solar + Storage project from developer EDF Renewables North America and will be the long-term owner.
The project will directly supply the Acton Water District’s micro-filtration treatment plant, its largest electrical load, and will allow it to benefit from discounted clean power and lease revenues from the solar and storage system. The project will also further Massachusetts’ clean energy goals to achieve net zero in 2050.
This project is the second solar installation Standard Solar owns and operates for the Acton Water District. The first is the 4.7-MW solar and 4-MWh storage Lawsbrook Project, also developed by EDF Renewables. The system was constructed on land owned by the Acton Water District, previously disturbed from gravel extraction and part of the W.R. Grace Superfund Site.
“EDF Renewables is proud to deliver a second project to the Acton Water District in support of their ambitious clean energy goals while also reducing costs,” said Peter Bay, VP of project development for EDF Renewables. “Beyond the significant economic benefits the project will bring to the District, it embodies the intentions of Massachusetts’ SMART Program as it’s located on a superfund site while interconnecting directly to the South Acton Water Treatment Plant. We appreciate the collaborative partnership with Standard Solar and the Acton Water District and look forward to future opportunities.”
