This is Derek Miller, Speaking on Business. rPlus Energies is a renewable energy development company based in Salt Lake City, and has been instrumental in opening Utah’s market for utility-scale solar development. President Luigi Resta shares more on how they are helping meet the demands of the modern energy transition.
Founded four and a half years ago, rPlus Energies develops utility-scale solar, wind, and solar plus battery projects, and, through a partnership known as rPlus Hydro, pumped storage hydropower projects.
In Utah alone, we have eight large-scale projects under development or construction, or now in operation. Working closely with local stakeholders, landowners and county officials, rPlus developed Graphite Solar, which is operating in Carbon County, and is currently under construction on Appaloosa Solar in Iron County.
These Utah-based projects denote more than a 2-billion-dollar investment in our economy, and continue Utah’s energy legacy.
rPlus values partnering with electrical utilities, incorporating customers as we strive to support them in achieving their energy goals by accessing the best mix of renewable resources and energy storage to enable a resilient, reliable and affordable power supply.
rPlus Energies develops large-scale modern power plants to contribute to the rebuilding of America’s energy infrastructure. Prior to the formation of rPlus, its executives were instrumental in developing Utah’s first utility-scale solar plant in 2015. For more information, visit the rPlus Energies website.
