Belltown Power Texas has started the development of stand-alone storage projects to complement its portfolio of solar assets, with a target of over 1 GW to be brought online over the next two to three years.
Over the last year, Belltown identified several locations where the need for storage is expected to become increasingly critical and is currently developing four storage sites with a total capacity of 640 MW.
“The need for storage has been apparent to us for a long time and we are happy to add such projects to our portfolio. The recent events in ERCOT have only enhanced our commitment to the space,” said Austin Willis, storage development lead for Belltown.
Belltown has been developing solar projects in ERCOT for over five years. In this time, Belltown has completed six different transactions encompassing eight projects totaling more than 1 GW of solar capacity.
“We are delighted with what we have achieved to date in ERCOT, and look forward to continuing our contribution through our solar, solar + storage, and standalone storage projects,” said Lloyd Pope, president of Belltown.
