Puerto Rico’s Largest Solar + Storage Project Begins

Construction has begun on Puerto Rico’s largest solar and storage system, Ciro One. The project, developed by Ciro Energy Group, is a 90-MW solar and 51.5-MW storage facility in Salinas. The battery technology will feature lithium-titanate oxide (LTO) and will come with a 25-year warranty. Additionally, the PV arrays will include a demonstration site for agrivoltaics, blending energy production with agricultural needs. Ciro One is expected to be operational by the end of 2024, and its combination of renewable energy and agricultural use will help strengthen and stabilize Puerto Rico’s energy network.

What Benefits Will Ciro One Provide Puerto Rico?

  • Ciro One will provide Puerto Rico with a 90 megawatt solar energy resource and 51.5 megawatt storage system, helping to reduce the island's dependence on fossil fuels.
  • The system will include a lithium-titanate oxide (LTO) battery technology, providing Puerto Rico with reliable energy storage for the first time.
  • The system's combination of PV arrays and agrivoltaics, the blending of energy production with agricultural needs, will provide an opportunity for agricultural production and economic growth.
  • The project is estimated to be finished by the end of 2024, which will provide a boost to Puerto Rico's overall energy security and reliability.
  • The project will help reduce Puerto Rico's carbon footprint and create clean, renewable energy that will benefit the island's environment.
