EnSync Energy Systems has announced a partnership with WindStax Energy to build a microgrid at a new Pitt Ohio trucking terminal in Parma, Ohio.
The microgrid will utilise both solar energy and wind energy generation through a 495kW photovoltaic system and eight six-story-tall vertical wind turbines that add 48kW to the system. These resources will be integrated with EnSync Energy's distributed energy resource (DER) SuperModule which houses 730 kilowatt hours of energy storage, the Matrix Energy Management system and DER Flex Internet of Energy software platform for system command, communication and control. The system will enable the trucking company to participate in net metering programs, while also providing backup energy during grid disturbances. Construction has commenced and is expected to finish in the spring of 2019.
