Scout Acquires 112MW Missouri Solar
26 Dec 2021 by renews.biz
Scout Clean Energy has acquired the 112MW Stockton Lake solar farm in southwest Missouri from Azimuth Renewables for an undisclosed price.
Azimuth will continue as an active partner in the development of the site in Polk County.
Scout will procure equipment, construct, and operate the solar project upon completion of development.
Stockton Lake will be owned by Scout once the project is operational in 2025.
Stockton Lake has an active request in the AECI interconnection queue, and the project is expected to execute an Interconnection Agreement in the first quarter of 2022.
The facility will interconnect directly to the AECI system through a 69kV substation operated by KAMO Power.
Scout Clean Energy founder and chief executive Michael Rucker said: “There is increasing demand for renewables across the US and in particular in Missouri.
“We are pleased to expand our growing renewable energy footprint into Missouri through the development, construction, and operation of the Stockton Lake Solar Farm and make solar energy available to many Missourians.
“Importantly, the partnership with Azimuth Renewables means that Scout will be able to work hand in hand with an experienced team of developers to bring this important project to market as safely and efficiently as possible.”
Azimuth Renewable chief executive David Bunge said: “Azimuth Renewables is pleased to be working with Scout Clean Energy on the Stockton Lake project.
“We believe Scout is the ideal partner for this opportunity, and we look forward to working with them to make this project a success.”
Scout is a portfolio company of Quinbrook Infrastructure Partners, a specialist global investment manager focused exclusively on renewables, storage, and grid support infrastructure.
