US energy storage developer GlidePath Power Solutions has acquired a 149MW wind farm portfolio located in North Texas from Exelon Generation, for an undisclosed price, as per the latest US wind industry news.
GlidePath Power Solutions said that the acquisition adds to its present operating portfolio made up of solar, wind and storage products in the US and gives it the scope to add battery storage for streamlining the performance of its facilities.

Located north of Amarillo, the acquired wind portfolio comprises eight distributed wind energy projects that serve the Southwest Power Pool market.

We look forward to managing these wind assets in a way that will hopefully strengthen reliability of supply in the local electric grid and deliver benefits for Texas power consumers.”
GlidePath Power Solutions, which is a portfolio company of Quinbrook Infrastructure Partners, has a development pipeline of more than 1GW of battery storage projects. Included in this are new facilities at various stages of permitting approval and pre-construction planning, located in New York, Texas and all over the PJM grid operator’s service territory.
