Intelligent Generation today announced full commercial operations of the 3.5MW rooftop solar + 2MW TESLA energy storage system at Magid Glove & Safety Company in Romeoville, IL. The project earned its first revenues in PJM fast response frequency regulation market (grid stabilization service) clearing consistently with the highest performance metrics.
The MAGID rooftop is the largest commercial solar array in the Midwest, and among the top 5 in the US. The project is enabled and managed by IG’s cloud-based software (IG POWR:Suite), which integrates solar energy with energy storage to profitably improve operations and build resiliency. Intelligently managed microgrids connected to the main grid provide companies with economic competitive advantage.
“Solar is the wave of the future…doing the right thing and having the savings to make it worthwhile business-wise – it became a no-brainer for us,” says Harvey Cohen, President at Magid.
“MAGID demonstrates what makes solar plus energy storage so compelling for commercial and industrial customers in the Midwest,” says Jay Marhoefer, CEO at Intelligent Generation. “The IG POWR:Suite reduces MAGID’s electricity bill, provides critical backup power and earns them a check from the wholesale power markets every month.”
The project benefits at Magid’s Romeoville, IL headquarters and manufacturing facility include:
- Reduced costs with inexpensive solar energy plus smart battery dispatch (peak shaving).
- Increased operational resiliency with critical systems backup.
- Additional revenue earned through participation in wholesale power markets.
- Greening of operations through emissions-free solar displacing brown power from the grid.
