Spearmint Energy, a next-generation renewable-energy company, has commissioned activities at its 300-megawatt-hour battery-energy storage (BESS) project, Revolution, for Texas’ ERCOT power market.
When it enters commercial operations, Revolution is expected to be one of the largest BESS projects in the United States. It is situated within a major wind and solar hub in the Lower Colorado River Authority’s transmission network.
In December 2022, Spearmint broke ground on the project in partnership with Mortenson, a power engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor specializing in energy transmission and battery-energy storage solutions. Revolution was energized in June 2023, it reached mechanical completion in July, and it 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
