Update: The Minster Solar Farm is online producing energy.
The 18-acre, 4.3-MW solar array and medium voltage connection are nearly complete. The 7-MW/2.8-MWh energy storage system will improve power quality locally and within PJM’s transmission grid, which serves more than 60 million customers. Minster will receive reactive power compensation, voltage support, improved grid power quality and potential peak demand reduction.
Design Energy partnered with American Renewable Energy and Power (AREP) who worked for the Village of Minster on the project.
