Kingston Technology plots solar + storage
Kingston Technology will add a 1.5 MW solar power and battery storage construction project at its corporate headquarters in Fountain Valley, Calif.
The project, which will begin construction in mid-2019, pending utility company approvals, includes a 730kW ballast roof mount system and a 772kW solar carport structure. In addition, project developer Sunworks Inc. will integrate a NantEnergy energy storage system that is comprised of 10-30 kW inverters, 10-40 kWh battery banks and control management software. A statement from Sunworks said, “The new system is an integral component of Kingston’s plans to reduce its electrical footprint by 20 percent as well as advance its corporate sustainability initiatives.”
“Going solar is the latest step in our goal to better address our growth and leave Kingston a better place for the next generation,” said Larry Gonzales, Kingston Technology’s vice president of administration.
