FirstLight Power and DHD to deliver 25MW of clean power to Connecticut


FirstLight Power, a leading clean provider of renewable energy and energy storage resources, announced this Thursday it partnered with Davis Hill Development (DHD). Under the agreement, the companies will develop a suite of solar, energy storage; and hybrid assets in Connecticut to operate both independently and in coordination with FirstLight’s existing fleet of hydropower assets.

Firstly, the partnership will bring a new generation of hybrid renewable energy resources to serve New England’s grid; setting a bold example for how diverse clean energy technologies should deliver maximum system value.

In fact, FirstLight Power already operates the largest portfolio of renewable energy generation projects in Connecticut. Consequently, after the partnership, the company will expand its capacities to deliver an even greater clean energy impact towards the state’s goal of achieving a 100 percent zero-carbon electric sector by 2040.

Moreover, the partnership will focus on delivering innovative clean assets in a way that centers on reliability, affordability, and equity. These new developments will provide local jobs and increase FirstLight’s already substantial economic development impact in the local communities.

Furthermore, as outlined above, the companies expect that the partnership will help deliver up to 25 MW of solar and battery storage projects; across eight of FirstLight’s existing Connecticut properties along the Housatonic, Shetucket, and Quinebaug Rivers.

In addition, the new storage and solar assets will bring flexibility to FirstLight’s existing hydropower portfolio in the state; therefore, the resulting portfolio will be one of the first of its kind in the US. It will improve system reliability and flexibility while simultaneously reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Alicia Barton, President, and CEO of FirstLight said about the matter. “We are proud to be partnering with DHD; a proven developer of innovative renewable projects, to deliver a new generation of hybrid and storage-integrated clean energy resources to power the Nutmeg State.”

On the other hand, Jared Alvord, VP of Strategic Development of DHD, said. “This collaboration and innovation will be integral as we transition to a clean energy economy, and we are thrilled our relationship with FirstLight prioritizes both of these things and allows us to make an impact together.”
