Broad Reach Power is an independent power producer based in Houston which owns a 13-gigawatt portfolio of utility-scale solar and energy storage power projects in Montana, California, Wyoming, Utah and Texas.

“Over the last several years, Broad Reach has been steadily building a significant renewable energy and energy storage portfolio in California and other locations in the western United States. Our continued investment in high-quality energy storage equipment will help ensure the reliability and transformation of the grid for years to come,” said Broad Reach Senior Vice President, Corporate Development Justin Amirault.

“Broad Reach carefully selects equipment vendors based on a wide range of criteria including performance, reliability and ethical supply chain management, among others. SYL has a proven track record in the space that meets Broad Reach’s high standards and will allow Cascade to enhance grid reliability for the long term.”

Cascade is a 25-Megawatt (MW)/100-Megawatt-hour (MWh) front-of-the-meter project and is expected to achieve commercial operation by the summer of 2022 to help mitigate capacity shortfalls in California. Cascade was selected by Pacific Gas & Electric to provide resource adequacy under a 20-year agreement signed in 2017. Broad Reach acquired the project in late 2020.

This is Broad Reach’s second order with SYL Battery, the first being 47 MWh for the Sierra Energy Storage Project in Jamestown, California. Broad Reach Power and SYL Battery have established a framework, master procurement agreement to enable expedited procurement for Broad Reach Power’s extensive, multi-year GWh project pipeline.

”Broad Reach Power has been an excellent customer and partner to SYL Battery and has enabled our rapid growth in the energy storage market,” said SYL Battery Director of Applications Engineering Lei Zhang. “Their commitment to safety, reliability and performance is number one in the energy storage industry. They are developing best practice standards for the entire industry.”
