A new battery energy storage system in the town of Sterling, Massachusetts is saving the Sterling Municipal Light Department’s ratepayers hundreds of thousands of dollars and providing at least 12 days of backup power to the police station and emergency dispatch center to keep first responder operations running, even during extended power outages.
This video showcases the economic and resilient power benefits of the solar+storage system with several interviewees discussing the merits of the project and features an animation segment that explains how the battery storage system works to save money and provide resilient power to the town during an emergency.
