The 80 MW Elektron Solar project is set to provide electricity to three municipal governments, one university, and two ski resorts when it reaches operation in 2023.
The 0.125 MW/0.5 MWh solution will provide demand charge reduction, backup power to critical loads, and supply additional grid services to the city of Logan, Utah.
The incentive program requires that the batteries be charged by the on-site solar power system in order to fully qualify.
Milford Flats is available due to the Energy Act of 2020, which aims to deploy 25 GW of solar, wind, and geothermal on public lands no later than 2025.
Landfills are increasingly playing host to solar facilities, with the EPA reporting an 80% rise in such projects across the U.S. over the last five years. A 4.7 MW Utah project is one of the latest additions.
