Battery Storage and Solar Project Planned for Puerto Rico

April 17, 2024
FlexGen is partnering with Infinigen on the project, which will provide critical power, grid reliability and flexibility.

FlexGen Power Systems, Inc. (FlexGen), a battery energy storage integration and software technology provider, Infinigen Renewables, a solar renewables company (Infinigen) and ArcLight Capital Partners (ArcLight) announced a milestone power and battery infrastructure project – a ~15 MW storage project paired with a ~32 MW Solar Project in the Yabucoa Municipality of Puerto Rico. Infinigen, a wholly owned subsidiary of a fund managed by ArcLight, is partnering with FlexGen to bring this project online.

The project will provide needed reliability and flexibility to the local grid, and with increased power from the YFN Yabucoa Solar Project. It will comply with some of the most demanding grid specifications (Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority requirements) by using FlexGen's  HybridOS energy management system platform and digital controls.

FlexGen's HybridOS energy management system and advanced analytics platform delivers the full stack of energy storage value, including ancillary services, capacity and energy market. The Yabucoa Project is FlexGen's second in Puerto Rico and builds on a rapidly growing fleet of energy storage assets monitored by their EMS platform throughout the United States for investor-owned utilities, municipal and cooperative utilities and independent power producers.

"Energy storage is critical to helping Puerto Rico with extreme weather and grid reliability. The island also has some of the strictest grid requirements in the world. We are proud to have been chosen and to partner with Infinigen Renewables for this project, a leading renewables developer and operator. With their deep portfolio, resources and experience in the local market, they know more than anyone what it takes to bring projects online successfully," said Kelcy Pegler, CEO of FlexGen.

"This project expands our current fleet in Puerto Rico to over 100 MW. Coupled with our development pipeline of over 1 GW of renewable assets, it represents another step towards the strategic objective of being the leading developer and operator of solar and storage capacity in Puerto Rico," said Leslie Hufstetler, CEO of Infinigen Renewables. "We are partnering with FlexGen to help deliver renewable power, reliability and grid enhancements to the infrastructure and people of Puerto Rico where power demand is expected to continue to grow."
