NHOA has successfully commissioned a 10-MWh energy storage system as part of a Solar-plus-Storage plant in Bellingham, Mass..

The plant was supplied to Kearsarge Energy. It is now online to provide dispatchable solar energy to the New England Independent System Operator. It will also support and stabilize the grid.

The project was first awarded to NHOA in December 2020 and completed about one year later. The commissioning of the plant is part of efforts undertaken by NHOA Energy through its platform in the Americas.  

In addition, Kearsarge Energy awarded NHOA the deployment of two further systems for an aggregate capacity of 12MWh.

“NHOA has provided a highly reliable and competitive solution along with excellent customer service well suited to the needs of the Massachusetts SMART program. Solar plus storage is a complicated offering and NHOA has been an excellent partner from design to contracting to commissioning. We look forward to more successes” added Andrew Bernstein, Managing Partner of Kearsarge Energy L.P.

Founded in 2009, Kearsarge has developed and financed more than 170 MW and $450 million of solar PV projects, many of them in the New England and eastern U.S. region.

NHOA was formerly Electro Power Systems. It is part of the TCC Group.
