EnSync Energy Systems has a lot of interesting concepts for residential and commercial distributed energy resource (DER) systems and Internet of Energy (IOE) control platforms. Its latest deployment is coming via a partnership with WindStax Energy to build a microgrid at a new PITT OHIO trucking terminal in Parma, Ohio.
The microgrid will utilize both solar energy and wind energy generation through a 495-kilowatt (kW) photovoltaic system and eight six-story-tall vertical wind turbines that add 48 kW to the system. These resources will be integrated with EnSync Energy’s DER SuperModule, which houses 730 kWh of energy storage, the Matrix Energy Management system and DER Flex IOE software platform for system command, communication and control. The system will enable the sustainability-minded trucking company to participate in net metering programs, while also providing backup energy during grid disturbances.

“Our multifaceted microgrid projects benefit from a partner like EnSync Energy, whose all-in-one solution has saved us time and brings consistency to the various components,” said WindStax Energy CEO Ronald Gdovic. “Together, we have designed a system that will deliver cost savings and reliable energy to PITT OHIO’s trucking operations.”
“Our ability to easily integrate and prioritize multiple distributed energy resources is recognized as a distinct advantage in microgrid projects, and our market success in Hawaii is now creating opportunities on the mainland,” said EnSync Energy Executive Vice President Dan Nordloh. “We look forward to helping PITT OHIO and WindStax accomplish their objectives of clean, affordable and resilient energy projects for this and other facilities throughout the Midwest.”
Construction has commenced and is expected to finish in the spring of 2019.
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
