Our solar and storage projects in the U.S.

Transforming the way we power the world with solar energy and storage.

 
We’ve expanded our solar and storage portfolio significantly in recent years. Today, we develop, construct, and operate solar and battery storage systems and currently have 460MWAC of solar PV and storage under construction.

Project overview

Our solar and storage centers
  • Oak Solar
    Oak Solar is located in Fairfield, NJ, and has exceeded projected production every year of operation.

    Facts

    Location: Fairfield Township, NJ

    Number of solar panels: 53,200 fixed solar panels

    Capacity: 10MWAC

    Timeline: Commercial operation began in May 2012
    Oak Solar is located on a 101-acre site and is comprised of 53,200 fixed solar panels. The project took only 18 months from early origination and development to commercial operation in 2012. At the time of its commissioning, Oak Solar was the largest non-utility owned solar power plant east of the Mississippi.
  • Carnegie Road storage project
    Carnegie Road storage project is located in Liverpool, United Kingdom, and is Ørsted’s first venture into large-scale storage.

    Facts


    Location: Liverpool, United Kingdom

    Capacity: 20MWAC

    Timeline: Commercial operation began in December 2018


    The project is a 20MW stand-alone battery system consisting of three lithium battery containers, as well as the associated power conversion systems. The plant is designed to operate flexibly, switching between different markets as its services are needed by local utilities.
  • Permian Energy Center
    Permian Energy Center is located in Andrews County, TX, and is a 460MWAc solar PV plus storage project, which will produce enough clean electricity to power approximately 100,000 U.S. homes.

    Facts

    Location: Andrews County, TX

    Number of solar panels: 1.3 million panels

    Solar capacity: 420MWAC from solar PV modules supplied by Jinko Solar and JA Solar

    Storage capacity: 40MWAC with one hour of capacity

    Timeline: Permian Energy Center will be operational by mid-2021
    Permian Energy Center marks a milestone for Ørsted, making it the first developer to own the ‘full spectrum’ of renewable technologies at utility scale in the U.S. — onshore and offshore wind, solar PV, and storage.

Onshore wind projects in the U.S.

As we work toward our goal of creating a world run entirely on green energy, we've expanded into onshore wind.
