Primergy Solar has actually participated in a sole battery supply agreement with Contemporary Amperex Technology (CATL) for the Gemini solar-storage project near Las Vegas.

As soon as finished, the $1.2 bn Gemini facility will certainly be one of the largest functional solar-storage projects in the US with a 690MW solar array and also 1416 megawatt hours of storage space capability.

Earlier this year, Primergy completed an extensive and also detailed purchase procedure as well as picked numerous internationally leading equipment suppliers as well as building companions for the Gemini project.

Tan Libin, vice president of CATL, said: "Our company believe our teamwork on the Gemini Solar Project will certainly set a terrific instance for large-scale electrochemical energy storage applications, thus advertising global drive towards carbon nonpartisanship."

Primergy designed a DC paired system for the Gemini project, which will certainly maximise performance from the teaming of the solar array with the CATL storage space system.

CATL will supply Primergy Solar with EnerOne, a modular outdoor liquid cooling battery energy storage space system that features long service life, high assimilation, and also high level of safety.

Ty Daul, Chief Executive Officer of Primergy, said: "The future of our nation's energy integrity and also resiliency depends on the mass deployment of battery storage space capacity that can provide regular power back into the grid when it's needed most.

" Along with CATL, we are constructing a market leading and highly advanced battery storage system that can capture excess solar power throughout the day and store it for use in the early evening after the sunsets in Nevada."
