[Irvine, United States, July 14, 2022] Today, Qcells, a leading provider of complete energy solutions, announced that it has started a 717.6kWdc behind-the-meter (BTM) solar + ESS project with food producer Jayone Foods Inc.

Qcells North America Distributed Energy’s latest project, which will be installed and commissioned onsite at Jayone’s facility in Paramount, California, will feature 1,495 Q.PEAK DUO XL-G10.3 modules and a 556kWh ESS along with Qcells’ Geli Energy Management System (EMS). It is structured under the terms of a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) where Jayone will benefit from reduced electricity costs while Qcells acts as the system owner and operator. The project qualifies for state and federal incentives including the California Self Generation Incentive Program (SGIP) and the 26 percent Investment Tax Credit (ITC).  

Jayone Foods Inc’ significant business growth prompted the food producer to invest in energy intensive equipment including new double-sized cold storage units. With a commitment to safeguard against increasing energy costs, reduce business expenses and create products as sustainably as possible, Jayone’s decision to partner with Qcells on a solar + ESS project served as a strategic way of meeting its business goals. 

Seung Hoon Lee, President of Jayone Foods Inc. said: “We are thrilled to add solar and an energy storage system to Jayone Foods Inc’ processing facility in Paramount. In an age when making more sustainable decisions plays an increasingly important role in how we do business, Jayone Foods Inc. is excited to partner with a complete energy solutions provider like Qcells to benefit from reduced energy costs while making a positive contribution to the environment.”

The system is expected to come online by Q4 2022 at which point it will begin offsetting up to 90 percent of Jayone Foods Inc.’ total loads at its Paramount facility. The solar plus storage system will yield over 2 million dollar-savings over the next 20 years in utility costs for the company.
