MIAMI & CRANE COUNTY, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Spearmint Energy (“Spearmint” or the “Company”), a next-generation renewable energy company enabling the clean energy revolution through battery energy storage, today confirmed the start of commissioning activities at the Company’s 300 MWh battery energy storage project known as Revolution. The delivery and installation of the PowerTitan Series battery energy storage system (“BESS”) supplied by the Sungrow Power Supply Co., Ltd. (“Sungrow”), a leading global inverter and energy storage system solutions supplier, marks a significant construction milestone for Revolution and brings Spearmint one step closer to commencing commercial operation of the project.
Situated within a major wind and solar hub in the Lower Colorado River Authority’s transmission network, Revolution is expected to be one of the largest BESS projects in the United States. Sungrow’s PowerTitan liquid cooled ESS product uses state-of-the-art lithium iron phosphate battery cells and a liquid cooling system to more efficiently cool the BESS. The successful commissioning of the BESS will enable Spearmint’s Revolution to support a low-cost, clean, and resilient grid for homes and businesses throughout the ERCOT power market.
“We are pleased to partner with Sungrow, well-recognized for its state-of-the-art projects and expertise in innovative and scalable energy storage solutions, on our inaugural project,” said Andrew Waranch, Founder, President, and Chief Executive Officer of Spearmint. “We are confident that with Sungrow’s support, Spearmint can help to further establish Texas’ grid as the gold standard for battery storage projects across the country. We look forward to harnessing the capabilities of the PowerTitan platform as Revolution nears operation.”
Hank Wang, President at Sungrow Americas, added, “As a proud supplier of innovative battery storage solutions, Sungrow is excited to partner with Spearmint, a like-minded and rapidly accelerating industry leader, to help bring Revolution online. We are pleased that with this partnership, our PowerTitan Series Liquid Cooling Storage System batteries will continue to meaningfully contribute to the delivery of sustainable power to the ERCOT grid.”
In December 2022, Spearmint broke ground on Revolution in partnership with Mortenson, a leading power engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contractor specializing in energy transmission and battery energy storage solutions. The project, which was energized in June 2023, reached mechanical completion in July and is scheduled to begin operations later this year. The project will help bolster Texas’ energy storage capabilities and provide resiliency during times of extreme weather as well as access to renewable energy solutions across the state.
