NM Food Bank Choose Sharp Storage System
Sharp Electronics’ Energy System and Services Group has sold its SmartStorage system to the Roadrunner Food Bank in Albuquerque, NM.
The installation is being made by Affordable Solar Installation and is the first for Sharp in the New Mexico market. The project features two Sharp 30 kilowatt (kW) SmartStorage systems and will work with the facility’s exiting 366 kW solar rooftop array.
The press release says that Roadrunner spends about $180,000 in utilities annually. Thirty percent of that money goes to demand charges. The new system is expected to cut $30,000 from annual utility charges, which could enable it to serve as many as 150,000 additional meals.
Sharp entered the storage business two years ago with the introduction of the SmartStorage system to the California market and the announcement of a multiyear agreement with Ideal Power for use of its 30 kW converter.
