Standard Solar aquires 6.2 MW solar portfolio from Trina Solar

The two ground-mounted community solar projects – West Main 1 and West Main 2 – developed by Trina Solar are located in Portsmouth.

Rhode Island has some of the highest electricity prices in the United States, and they are expected to continue to increase.

These new projects will allow customers in the National Grid service territory to benefit from clean energy savings by offsetting their electricity bills with solar energy.

“Partnerships in this industry are critical to delivering successful solar projects,” said Michael Streams, Standard Solar’s Chief Development Officer. “We’re honored to be a trusted development partner of Trina’s, particularly in helping Rhode Island grow its clean energy footprint, and look forward to growing our mutually beneficial relationship as our company launches its next growth phase.”

“We are very happy to get the chance to collaborate with Standard Solar, one of the fastest growing developers and operators of community solar,” said from Linhui Sui, President of Trina Solar International Solar System Business Unit. “We are committed to developing similar systems to expand broader customer access for local, clean, and affordable community solar.”

These projects will contribute to achieving Rhode Island’s goal to meet 100% of the state’s electricity demand with renewable energy by 2030.

The solar portfolio is expected to produce about 8,600 MWh of clean energy per year.

Both projects are expected to be completed in 2023.
