Framingham renewable energy company Ameresco has won the contract for the Slemon Park Microgrid, a renewable energy project being constructed in collaboration with Prince Edward Island (PEI) Energy Corp. in Canada.

The Slemon Park Microgrid will consist of a 10-megawatt solar facility with direct current-coupled energy storage, per Thursday's release.

The new, clean renewable energy grid that Ameresco is constructing will help Prince Edward Island reach its Net Zero energy goal by 2030.

“Improving grid resiliency will enable the province of Prince Edward Island to successfully implement renewable energy projects that will help serve to protect the Island’s environment and lead to a more sustainable and economically robust future,” said Bob McCullough, president of Ameresco Canada, in the written announcement.

The Slemon Park Microgrid is federally funded by Natural Resources Canada’s Smart Grid Program.

Construction on the project began in December with a target date for operation in Fall 2022.
