Three utility-scale solar projects totaling 390 MW have been secured by NuQuest Energy in Louisiana and Mississippi. The company has quickly progressed towards achieving the goal of building a 1 GW portfolio and solidifying the position of a locally-based industry-leading renewables development company.
“After several months of advanced analytical analyses of the electrical grids in both Louisiana and Mississippi, we’re excited to have secured our foundational projects with large developmental capacity,” said Alex Guitart, NuQuest Co-Founder. We look forward to advancing these projects and to generate value for all parties in our local community.”
Guitart is joined by industry executives Denis Taylor, Co-Founder & Partner, Audubon Companies; Bob Rosamond, Co-Founder & Partner, Audubon Companies; and Kirk Barrell, Founder & President, Barrell Energy Inc. and Amelia Resources. Together, the four co-founders have accumulated more than 120 years of experience in the energy infrastructure sector. Building on each partner’s industry expertise, this collaboration aims to deliver innovative solutions that advance renewable infrastructure development.
“NuQuest Energy has quickly secured excellent sites for utility-scale solar in our two target states,” said Bob Rosamond. “These sites build a great foundation for our progressing plans of a one gigawatt portfolio.”
“Our technology-focused approach has enabled us to select and secure sites with high probabilities of reaching operational status” said Kirk Barrell, NuQuest Co-Founder. The company has built a proprietary site-selection system, TerraVolt™, which integrates electric grid analyses, GIS, and advanced analytics. “Our proprietary technological system leverages decades of mapping and analytics experience to pinpoint high-quality locations for renewables development,” Barrell added.
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
