Jan 24, 2023 — Peregrine Energy Solutions LLC, a recently established integrated and multi-technology clean energy platform with a focus on utility scale energy storage, today announced it will develop two mid-stage energy storage assets in the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) market. The assets were acquired from Black Mountain Energy Storage by a global alternative investment manager on behalf of its funds.
The two assets, Best Southwest BESS in Dallas County and Mallard BESS in Collin County, total 490MW of renewable energy capacity and are strategically sited near the Dallas-Fort Worth energy load pocket and within developing congestion pockets. Peregrine is targeting an early 2025 commercial operation date for both assets.
“These assets are a meaningful start for Peregrine’s mission to strategically identify, manage and unlock long-term value from a robust, diversified portfolio of renewable assets,” said Clay Canning, Director of Development for Peregrine Energy Solutions. “Through these assets, we believe we will be able to offer structured contracts within the ERCOT market at a time when demand for stable renewable energy continues to grow.”
“We are pleased to have partnered with Peregrine Energy Solutions to develop these assets,” said Witt Duncan, Director of Corporate Development for Black Mountain Energy Storage. “We believe they are strategically located, high quality assets with meaningful potential and look forward to their future success.”
