Convergent Energy +Power, a Maryland-based energy storage company, has started operation of three additional solar-plus-storage systems that were developed for Choptank Electrical Cooperative. These systems are added to the two systems Convergent operates for the utility from 2019. These new systems add 4 MW/8 MWh of storage and over 2 MW of solar PV to Convergent’s existing portfolio in the Delmarva peninsula.
“Adding an energy storage system to existing solar PV is one of the best ways to optimize solar performance, lower energy costs, and increase reliability,” says Frank Genova, Convergent’s COO and CFO. “Convergent has over a decade of expertise developing standalone storage and solar-plus-storage to advance the clean energy transition while maximizing the value and performance of solar for our partners and our customers.”
Convergent’s five solar-plusstorage systems were developed and operated in Delmarva Peninsula. Eight additional solar-plusstorage systems were also funded and are being developed by the company. These systems will provide storage for 37 MW/121MWh and solar PV for 56 MW in New York.
