EnerVenue has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for the delivery of its energy storage solution to a Puerto Rico-based customer.
Sonnell Power Solutions, the energy division of transportation and logistics services provider Grupo Sonnell, will acquire and deploy 40 MWh of EnerVenue’s EnerStation battery systems in 2023 under the terms of the agreement. EnerVenue stated that volume will expand to 420 MWh between 2024 and 2025.
Following 2017’s destruction by Hurricane Maria, Puerto Rico’s power grid has remained in poor condition. According to EnerVenue, since then, local businesses have been willing to adopt alternative energy and grid-resilient solutions, and demand for them has increased.
“EnerVenue aligns with our aim to deliver the off-grid alternative energy option that industrial firms are so keen to adopt – one that is safe and durable,” stated Sonnell Power Solutions’ president, Jose Rodriguez Varela.
“We are also a firm where environmental concerns permeate every area of our operations. Rodriguez said that EnerVenue’s storage solutions allow us to lessen the key midday demand on the grid and dramatically reduce energy expenses for industrial customers.
