Broad Reach Power announced its first two transmission-level projects, North Fork and Bat Cave, are online and placed in service with ERCOT. Each project is a 100-MW/100-MWh greenfield battery storage resource located in Central Texas. Broad Reach now has 300 MW of dispatchable storage resources in ERCOT, improving the reliability of the ERCOT system.
“The demand for new power generation in Texas, including wind and solar generation, is accelerating. Battery storage is a critical component in supplying affordable, clean power, while also enhancing Texas grid reliability. Bringing these two projects into service advances Broad Reach’s commitment to developing key energy infrastructure in Texas,” said Broad Reach Power managing partner and CEO Steve Vavrik.
Last fall, Broad Reach announced its plan to invest more than $100 million in the North Fork and Bat Cave projects. Located in Mason and Williamson Counties in Texas, the sites operate alongside Broad Reach’s expanding portfolio of utility-scale battery storage plants across Texas.
