Plus Power Representatives and City of Angleton Staff will hold a Town Hall Meeting on January 7th, at 6:30 p.m. regarding the proposed Gambit Energy Battery Storage Park project.
On January 7, 2020, Plus Power representatives (Developer) and the City of Angleton staff will hold a Town Hall meeting regarding the proposed Gambit Energy Storage Park project located at the terminus of Heritage Lane or Murray Ranch Road.
The Energy Battery Storage Park would serve the community by providing the local electric grid with backup energy reserves and help integrate and stabilize new renewable energy resources. This Project uses proven, reliable, and safe lithium-ion batteries that are pre-assembled for use in climate-controlled containers with redundant operating and safety systems. The project would charge from electricity provided by a connection to the existing 138kV Angleton Substation at W. Locust and N. Walker Street, and discharge electricity onto the electrical grid through the same path into the substation.
The project would provide approximately $200,000 tax revenue to the City of Angleton and provide roughly $450,000 to the school district. Once completed, the system would be an unmanned and remotely monitored facility and would operate with no emissions of any kind, and receive virtually no municipal services. The project boundary will be, at a minimum, 150 ft. away from residences and minimal visual impacts would be screened by substantial natural vegetation, including existing copses of live oak trees. The Energy Storage Park would strengthen Angleton's energy independence and resiliency for decades into the future."
If you wish to learn more about the project before January 7th, you can find additional information regarding the energy park project on the City ‘s website at www.angleton.tx.us under the section labeled News Flash.
We invite you to attend the Town Hall meeting which will begin at 6:30 p.m. held in the City Council Chambers at 120 S. Chenango Road.
