Infinigen Renewables, a solar energy company, and ArcLight Capital Partners announced this week a milestone power and battery infrastructure project – a 15-megawatt (MW) storage project paired with a 32 MW solar project in Yabucoa.

Infinigen, a wholly owned subsidiary of a fund managed by ArcLight, is partnering with FlexGen Power Systems Inc. (FlexGen), a leading battery energy storage integrator and software technology provider, to bring the project online, the company said Wednesday.

Infinigen is one of several energy firms that have projects in Puerto Rico and are participating in renewable energy tenders launched by the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority (PREPA) and the Puerto Rico Energy Bureau.

The project will provide needed reliability and flexibility to the island energy grid, and with increased power from the YFN Yabucoa Solar Project. It will comply with some of the most demanding grid specifications (PREPA requirements) by utilizing FlexGen’s industry-leading HybridOS energy management system platform and digital controls.

“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 toward 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.”

“Energy storage is critical to helping Puerto Rico with extreme weather and grid reliability,” FlexGen CEO Kelcy Pegler said. “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.”
