EnSync Energy and WindStax Energy Partner on Microgrid for Midwest Transportation Hub
MILWAUKEE, Dec. 4, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — EnSync, Inc. (NYSE American: ESNC), dba EnSync Energy Systems, which is creating the future of electricity with innovative residential and commercial distributed energy resource (DER) systems and Internet of Energy (IOE) control platforms, today announced a partnership with WindStax Energy to build a microgrid at a new PITT OHIO trucking terminal in Parma, Ohio.
The microgrid will utilize both solar energy and wind energy generation through a 495-kilowatt (kW) photovoltaic system and eight six-story-tall vertical wind turbines that add 48 kW to the system. These resources will be integrated with EnSync Energy’s DER SuperModule,TM which houses 730 kilowatt hours of energy storage, the Matrix EnergyTM Management system and DER FlexTM IOE software platform for system command, communication and control. The system will enable the sustainability-minded trucking company to participate in net metering programs, while also providing backup energy during grid disturbances.
“Our multifaceted microgrid projects benefit from a partner like EnSync Energy, whose all-in-one solution has saved us time and brings consistency to the various components,” said WindStax Energy CEO Ronald Gdovic. “Together, we have designed a system that will deliver cost savings and reliable energy to PITT OHIO’s trucking operations.”
“Our ability to easily integrate and prioritize multiple distributed energy resources is recognized as a distinct advantage in microgrid projects, and our market success in Hawaii is now creating opportunities on the mainland,” said EnSync Energy Executive Vice President Dan Nordloh. “We look forward to helping PITT OHIO and WindStax accomplish their objectives of clean, affordable and resilient energy projects for this and other facilities throughout the Midwest.”
“Our latest trucking terminal reflects our goal to be sustainability pioneers in the freight transportation industry,” said Justine Russo, Director of Sustainability and Business Intelligence at PITT OHIO. “PITT OHIO is excited to partner with innovators like WindStax and EnSync to enable our implementation of renewable energy. The renewable energy microgrid in Parma is a critical part of PITT OHIO’s Triple Bottom Line sustainability strategy around People Planet and Purpose.”
Construction has commenced and is expected to finish in the spring of 2019.
