Prosperity Energy Storage Project

The nation's first energy storage facility fully integrated into a utility power grid.

The PNM Prosperity Energy Storage Project helps to address the challenge of renewable energy reliability. The goal of the Prosperity Project is to develop a way to manage solar energy and other renewable resources so they can be accessed and used when they are most needed.

The project features one of the largest at its time combinations of battery storage and photovoltaic energy in the nation.
