Engie has been hired by Guam’s state electricity utility to build two solar-plus-storage plants with a combined capacity of 50MWp/300MWh on the Micronesian island.

The firm scooped up the project duo in the third round of Guam’s competitive renewable tender programme after submitting the lowest bid.

The plants will deliver more than 85GWh annually and are scheduled to be operational by 2022, according to Engie.

By the time this article was published, the French energy group had not yet responded to PV Tech's questions about the project's tariff, its costs and its construction timeline.

The firm's storage business, Engie EPS, will supply the battery storage system and act as the solution provider and system integrator with help from partner Samsung SDI.
