Aemetis begins construction of 2MW PV and battery system for Keyes biorefinery

November 16, 2022 |

In California, Aemetis says construction has begun for the TotalEnergies and Schneider Electric solar microgrid system with at 2.0 MW photovoltaic (PV) array and a 1.25 MW battery energy storage system. Once construction has been completed, the microgrid will be integrated with the new Rockwell/Allen Bradley distributed control system (DCS) at the Aemetis Advanced Fuels biorefinery in Keyes, California. 

The solar array will generate approximately 3.2 million kWh per year and reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by ~8,000 MT CO2e per year. Foundations for the solar array are now under construction, with project completion expected in the second quarter of 2023. TotalEnergies serves as the project’s PV supplier as well as the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contractor.
