WattBridge Energy has commissioned the Mark One Generating Station in Brazoria County, Texas, the company's fourth new power-generation installation within the past three years.
The 288-megawatt Mark One station supports renewable development and delivers energy security during times of high demand, including extreme cold or hot weather. The station delivers fast-start, reduced-emission peaking power in the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) grid system.
“This plant is exactly what our Texas grid needs — more reliable, dispatchable thermal power generation that performs when the sun isn't shining and wind isn't blowing,” said Texas Sen. Mayes Middleton. “WattBridge has stepped up to the plate with American-built infrastructure to deliver the power that Texans expect.”
WattBridge has 2,400 megawatts operational or under construction, and the firmhas a plan to execute a further 1,600 megawatts for ERCOT.
