Project Description

Schneider Electric is the global specialist in energy management and automation. At their North American headquarters in Boston, the company wanted to create a visible example of their microgrid technology in action, while offsetting energy costs and creating a backup power source during outages.

REC Solar built and will operate the canopy and rooftop solar arrays that power the microgrid, which was built by Schneider Electric. Duke Energy Renewables, which owns a majority interest in REC Solar, owns the microgrid system and solar array and is selling the power to Schneider Electric through a long-term power purchase agreement. The microgrid also incorporates a natural gas generator as an anchor resource, allowing the solar panels to operate during grid outages to maintain critical operations.

“The integration of an advanced microgrid at the Schneider Electric campus reduces its energy costs, incorporates more sustainable energy and delivers demand-side efficiency, while also offering resiliency to the facility in the event of a loss of power from the grid.”

Chris Fallon, Vice President of Duke Energy Renewables and Commercial
