AlphaStruxure, a joint venture of Schneider Electric and Carlyle Group, announced it will design and install an 11.34 MW rooftop microgrid project on the New Terminal One of John F. Kennedy International Airport in Jamaica, N.Y.
Upon completion by 2026, the microgrid will feature the largest rooftop solar array in New York City, made up of 13,000 solar modules. At 7.66 MW, also the largest PV array on any United States airport terminal, with all available and viable rooftop space on the new terminal used for solar panels. Electricity generated from the project is enough clean power for 3,570 average homes per year.
Besides solar generation, the New Terminal One Microgrid project will use 2 MW / 4 MWh of lithium-ion batteries and 3.68 MW of combined heat and power (renewable natural gas) and hydrogen fuel cells from Doosan/HyAxiom.
