US energy storage and solar developer Agilitas Energy has agreed a $75 million deal to acquire a portfolio of six standalone energy storage system (ESS) projects in Greater Houston, Texas from Gulf States Renewable Energy, a subsidiary of GSR Energy.
The acquisition will add 60MW to Agilitas Energy’s renewable energy and battery storage project pipeline.
