The Arroyo Solar as well as Storage project is to combine 300MWac of solar with a 150MW/ 600MWh battery power storage system and also is being created by DE Shaw Renewable Investments (DESRI).

The project is itself part of a strategy from regional energy Public Service Company of New Mexico to procure nearly 1GW of solar and also energy storage projects to replace the San Juan Generating Station, a coal-fired nuclear power plant that is established for closure.

DESRI acquired the project from its original programmer, Centaurus Renewable Energy, prior to closing debt financing.

The 300MWac solar PV plant will be created by Sundt Building and construction. The range will certainly utilize NEXTracker's radar, while the BESS will certainly make up Tesla Megapacks, which the Silicon Valley (possibly quickly to be Texas) technology company is commissioning in addition to providing. Local company Affordable Solar Installation will build the BESS.
