Primergy Solar LLC, a developer, proprietor and operator of utility and distributed scale photo voltaic and storage, has entered a sole battery provide settlement with Contemporary Amperex Technology Co. Ltd. (CATL) for the $1.2 billion Gemini Solar+Storage Project outdoors of Las Vegas.
As soon as accomplished, Gemini will likely be one of many largest operational photo voltaic+storage initiatives within the U.S., with a 690 MW AC/966 MW DC photo voltaic array and 1,416 MWh storage functionality.
Earlier this 12 months, Primergy accomplished a procurement course of and chosen gear suppliers and building companions for the undertaking.
“With Primergy’s industry-seasoned crew, their in-house functionality in improvement, building and administration of long-term belongings and CATL’s revolutionary battery applied sciences,” says Tan Libin, vp of CATL. “We consider our cooperation on the Gemini Photo voltaic Challenge will set an incredible instance for large-scale electrochemical power storage functions, thus selling international drive in the direction of carbon neutrality.”
Primergy designed a DC-coupled system for the undertaking, which can maximize effectivity from the teaming of the photo voltaic array with the CATL storage system. CATL will provide Primergy Photo voltaic with EnerOne, a modular out of doors liquid cooling battery power storage system. With a cycle lifetime of as much as 10,000 cycles, the LFP-based battery product will contribute to the operation of the Gemini undertaking.
