June 29 (Renewables Now) - Austin-based battery energy storage systems developer Jupiter Power LLC today announced the start of commercial operations at the 200-MW/200-MWh Crossett Power Management facility in Crane County, Texas.
The completion of this project has expanded Jupiter’s total dispatchable energy storage capacity to more than 450 MWh as it already operates the 100-MW/200-MWh Flower Valley II facility in Reeves County, Texas. The company has another West Texas-based project of the same size in late-stage commissioning plus more than 500 MWh of projects in the late stages of development.
"We have witnessed the strain that the Texas climate can put on the grid during unseasonably warm days. Jupiter Power's projects like Crossett and Flower Valley II are optimally sited where the grid needs support to enhance resiliency both cost-effectively and reliably,” stated Mike Geier, Chief Technology Officer, Jupiter Power.
