PowerOptions, which describes itself as the largest energy-buying consortium in New England, has expanded its relationship with Solect Energy to offer large scale solar and storage to its members
Through PowerOptions' partnership with Solect, members can contract for solar and storage PPAs, at building sites and offsite locations.
Under the program, Solect Energy is now able to offer solar photovoltaic (PV) and storage solutions of any size to PowerOptions' members looking to reduce their electricity costs and transition to renewable energy resources. Offerings include rooftop solar energy systems, solar canopies for parking lots, ground mounts, net metering solutions, and battery storage systems. Solect's PV+Storage on-site Power Purchase Agreements (PPA) will provide an offset of peak demand charges when system power is most expensive. "Additionally, the program will secure incentives and cost-savings through utility, state, and ISO New England programs available for solar and battery configurations," PowerOptions said
PowerOptions' membership is comprised of more than 450 members from nonprofit organizations and public entities, such as state agencies, cities, towns and schools, across Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island.
Every PowerOptions program is subject to a competitive procurement process.
Solect has been PowerOptions' partner for the Small Systems Solar Program for more than four years, and will continue in that role as well. Under the PowerOptions Small Systems Solar Program, Solect has installed more than 80 projects totaling 15 megawatts of solar energy. The Small Systems Solar Program applies to solar energy systems of less than 300 kilowatts capacity and this program will continue in conjunction with the Large-Scale Solar program.
