This solar plus energy storage system is built on formerly capped landfill and is expected to offset more than 11,000 metric tons of carbon each year.
Borrego developed, designed, and built this turnkey solar plus storage project on a formerly capped landfill. The system includes 2 large solar arrays totaling 11.7 megawatts of solar, plus 4 Fluence battery units delivering approximately 26 megawatt-hours of energy storage. This system is engineered with a high DC-to-AC ratio, which enables the system owner, AES, to push more clean energy onto the local electrical grid. The system is expected to generate enough energy to power approximately 1463 homes and offset more than 11,039 metric tons of carbon each year.
