Innovative Lawsbrook Solar and Energy Storage Project in Acton Massachusetts has been completed by Standard Solar and partners

EDF Renewables, Standard Solar and the Acton Water District completed a unique 4.69 MW solar and 4 MWh storage Lawsbrook Project in Acton, Massachusetts. The system was constructed on land owned by the Acton Water District previously disturbed from gravel extraction and part of the W.R. Grace Superfund Site.

Standard Solar acquired the project from EDF Renewables. Both the Town of Plymouth and the Acton Water District will reap the benefits of discounted electricity as well as lease revenues from the system. Because it is a combined solar and storage system, the system’s battery will discharge clean power during evening hours and minimize reliance on non-renewable sources during those times.

The system is projected to generate 5,866 MWh of clean energy annually, powering 800 average Massachusetts homes and offsetting the CO2 equivalent of burning 4.5 million pounds of coal. The Lawsbrook Project received an award from the Massachusetts Solar Massachusetts Renewable Targets (SMART) program.
