Broad Reach Power completes 200-MWh battery portfolio to support renewables on ERCOT grid
Broad Reach Power has announced that its first two transmission-level projects, North Fork and Bat Cave, are online and commissioned at ERCOT. Each project is a 100-MW/100-MWh greenfield battery storage resource in Central Texas. Broad Reach now has 300 MW of shippable storage resources in ERCOT, improving the reliability of the ERCOT system.
“Demand for new power generation in Texas, including wind and solar, is increasing. Battery storage is a critical component in providing affordable, clean power, while also improving the reliability of the Texas grid. The commissioning of these two projects further enhances Broad Reach’s commitment to developing key energy infrastructure in Texas,” said Steve Vavrik, managing partner and CEO of Broad Reach Power.
Last fall, Broad Reach announced its plan to invest more than $100 million in the North Fork and Bat Cave projects. The locations are located in Mason and Williamson counties in Texas and partner with Broad Reach’s growing portfolio of battery storage facilities for use throughout Texas.
