Invenergy has several wind, battery projects in the planning stages

Several subsidiaries of Invenergy Investment Co. LLC are building or planning power projects around the country, with a mix of wind and battery storage technologies.

A number of project subsidaries of Invenergy filed a March 19 notice with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission about the recent addition of a small (less than 1 MW) capacity addition at an Invenergy-controlled solar farm in Georgia. In that filing, those companies and their power plants were described. Here are the ones where a power project is being planned or built.
