Projects Will Add 600 Megawatt-Hours of Storage Capacity to Origis Solar Sites
MIAMI and LAKE MARY, Fla. (December 20, 2022) – Origis Energy, one of America’s largest solar and energy storage developers, has contracted Mitsubishi Power Americas to deliver three utility-scale battery energy storage system (BESS) projects totaling 150 megawatts / 600 megawatt hours. The projects will be co-located with three Origis Energy photovoltaic solar facilities in the Southeast United States to reduce curtailment of excess solar generation which will enable greater efficiency and higher capacity of the sites.
Origis will use the Mitsubishi Power Emerald storage solution for the three projects, successively coming online over the next two years. Origis has pioneered large-scale solar in the Southeast, working with leading utilities, municipalities and electric cooperatives to deploy over 1.5 gigawatts of operational and contracted projects in the region. The company’s U.S. total for operational and contracted solar and BESS projects is over 4 GWs. Energy storage enables Origis to add grid services to renewable energy generation. Consequently, Or
