One of the largest solar-plus-storage installations in the continental United States is now in operation in North Carolina. The 8.5-megawatt utility-scale project has a storage capacity of 12 megawatt hours, according to a release.
All told, 21,900 high-performance LG solar panels (395-watt LG NeON 2 72-cell modules) have been installed across a dozen separate solar farms in Columbus and Brunswick counties. LG Electronics provided tax equity financing to the projects in partnership with Cypress Creek Renewables.
"Creating a clean, sustainable future that's accessible and affordable is central to LG's goal of providing solutions that match changing needs in our communities, workplaces and homes – including innovative, intelligent solutions for energy conservation, solar energy and energy storage," said Tim Distler, head of solar business development for LG Electronics USA.
