Amber Infrastructure Group has expanded its U.S. renewable energy activities through the launch of Circle Power Renewables – a development company focused on solar, wind and battery projects in Michigan and other regional power markets.
Circle Power Renewables is an expansion of Amber’s existing joint venture with the principals of Circle Power. Scotia Wind, the joint venture’s first project, is a 60 MW wind project in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula that recently secured long-term power purchase agreements with Upper Peninsular Power Co. (UPPCO). The joint venture also recently secured development rights to the Groveland Mine Solar and 7 Mile Pit Solar projects through a solicitation run by Michigan’s Department of Natural Resources.
“Circle Power is thrilled to grow its relationship with Amber,” says Jordan Roberts, CEO of Circle Power Renewables. “Circle Power Renewables is deeply committed to Michigan’s renewable power future. Amber’s global infrastructure expertise provides a tremendous foundation for Circle Power Renewables to continue investing in Michigan’s energy transformation while selectively expanding into new markets.”
Circle Power Renewables has secured a further pipeline of projects in Michigan, increasing Amber’s overall future investment in the state. The joint venture will explore transmission and storage opportunities in support of Michigan’s carbon reduction targets as well as seeking opportunities in other U.S. markets.
