Integrated Power Generation, Energy Storage, & Gas to Liquids Solutions
FirstPower Energy is an independent North American power generation company focused exclusively on the development, financing, construction, ownership and operation of Smart Micro-Grid Systems (SMGS) generation/energy storage systems, and Smart Micro Gas-to-Liquids (SMGTLs) projects in international markets.
Based in Austin, Texas, FirstPower has in development over 2,000 megawatts (MW) of power generating and energy storage capacity and over 50 million gallons per year of natural gas-to-liquids (low-sulphur diesels and gasoline) projects in the US (Texas, New Jersey, Illinois, and Indiana), Mexico and Ghana.
Formed in 2012 by founders of Cavallo Energy and EnergyGen Capital, we have a long history of developing projects with the financial resources, industry contacts, and strategic insights necessary to maximize growth and shareholder return.
Our generation subsidiary, FirstPower Energy Texas LLC, is developing battery energy storage (BESS) projects under a December, 2014 joint venture with FirstCharge Energy LLC. Projects will be announced in early 2017.
Additionally, FirstPower Energy Texas LLC is developing a proprietary 10 MWe combined cooling and power (CCP) plant using proven technology. Designed to reduce datacenter PUEs to 1.28, we are currently developing several projects for commercial startup in summer 2017. The first CCP plant will be built within the Pflugerville Economic Development Corporation's (PCDC) 130Commerce Energy Park, a 160-acre development in North Austin, Texas.
Our fuels subsidiary, FirstFuels LLC, is developing proprietary 15 million gallons per year gas-to-liquids (GTL) plants in the US using proven technology. The first plant will be built within the existing natural gas storage facilities of MidWest Energy near Terre Haute, IN. The plant will access low cost natural gas shale in the Indiana basin. Plant startup is planned for summer 2018. Additional plants are planned at select shale and/or retail outlets in Texas, New Jersey, and Illinois. We are currently seeking to expand the GTL platform to other areas of North America, especially where natural gas flaring may be occurring. The US diesel market consumes over 40 billion gallons annually.
Since 2004, our principals have closed over $350 million of infrastructure projects in North America and Europe. Please contact us for additional information on our leading industry solutions.
