Infinigen Renewables, a solar energy company owned by an ArcLight Capital Partners fund, has teamed up with FlexGen Power Systems to develop a solar with battery storage project in Puerto Rico.

ArcLight said Infinigen is partnering with FlexGen to bring the 15MW storage project paired with a 32MW solar project in Yabucoa online. Financial details were undisclosed.

Leslie Hufstetler, CEO of Infinigen Renewables, said: “This project expands our current fleet in Puerto Rico to over 100MW. Coupled with our development pipeline of over 1GW 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.

“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.”

Kelcy Pegler, CEO of FlexGen, said: “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.”
