Solar Grid Storage and Standard Solar, a leader in the development, construction, integration, financing and installation of solar electric systems, have completed a solar microgrid project in Maryland, USA.

The project, announced earlier this year, is a grid-interactive energy storage system co-located with a new 1,368 panel photovoltaic array, creating one of America’s first commercial scale microgrids, according to Standard Solar.

The 402kW system, located at Konterra Realty’s corporate headquarters in Laurel, Maryland, is estimated to generate 20% of the building’s annual power and includes two electric vehicle charging stations with infrastructure for four additional stations.
