Pine Gate Renewables has achieved commercial operations on a 6.9 MW/10 MWh solar and storage installation located in Enfield, North Carolina, northeast of Raleigh, the company’s first.
The project, Grissom Solar, has a a long-term contract with North Carolina Electric Membership Corporation for the electricity generated and services provided by the storage solution. Grissom’s energy storage system will dispatch power during peak demand hours and provide critical ancillary services to ensure the reliability of the grid. The system will charge exclusively from solar. The installation is interconnected to Halifax Electric Membership Corporation’s Medoc Substation.
Blue Ridge Power, Pine Gate’s strategic partner, provided all the engineering, procurement and construction for Grissom Solar, which began in January and reached its commercial operation date this month.
Pine Gate Renewables launched Blue Ridge Power back in May, an engineering, procurement, and construction company that houses Pine Gate’s former EPC operations. Along with the launch, Blue Ridge Power acquired the solar division of Horne Brothers Construction. Pine Gate will exclusively use Blue Ridge Power to build the company’s projects, but Blue Ridge is not exclusive to Pine Gate.
While Grissom’s battery is the first storage solution that Pine Gate has installed in the Carolinas, the company has a 2.5 GW storage project development pipeline, so there will be more to come soon in the Tar Heel State.
