VANCOUVER, BC, Nov. 30, 2022 /CNW/ - Revolve Renewable Power Corp. (TSXV: REVV) ("Revolve" or the "Company") is pleased to provide an update to shareholders and announce the filing of its financial and operating results for the three months ended September 30, 2022.

Steve Dalton, CEO of Revolve commented, "We are delighted to report on the considerable progress the Company has made over the course of the last eight (8) months since completion of our public listing on the TSXV."

"We have continued to develop and expand our Utility Scale project portfolio, which currently stands at 3.6GW across twelve (12) wind, solar & battery storage projects in the US and Mexico. Key milestones are being met on the various projects as we move closer towards reaching a ready-to-build (or "RTB") status in 2024 on our most advanced projects. We are expecting a very robust 2023 as we continue to support the development of our renewable energy portfolio to reach various RTB targets."

"The most significant development for the Company over the period has been the transition from being solely a project developer to becoming an independent power producer, generating electricity with recurring long-term revenue and cashflow from a growing renewable energy portfolio of commercial & industrial customers in Mexico."  

"This transition started with the announcement in May 2022 of a new division, Revolve Renewable Business Solutions, to focus on the fast-growing distributed generation (or "DG") market in Mexico and the US. To accelerate our entry into this market we successfully completed the acquisition of Centrica Business Solutions Mexico in August 2022. This provided the Company with a 2.85MW portfolio of operating rooftop solar and combined heat and power (or "CHP") projects along with a further 3MW CHP project that is under construction. The acquisition has provided a platform to quickly expand our pipeline of new DG project opportunities, which led to the signing of our first battery storage (or "BESS") project in September 2022. (https://money.tmx.com/en/quote/REVV/news/5377287865811312/Revolve_Grows_its_Distributed_Generation_Portfolio_by_an_Additional_32MWh) The 3.2MWh BESS project in Cancun, Mexico has increased our overall DG portfolio to 10MW of operating and under construction assets, while our project development pipeline is growing rapidly and now stands at over 60MW. Our target is to convert this development pipeline into signed projects during 2023, which will continue to grow both the revenue and EBITDA generated by this division."  

"Looking at the broader outlook for the renewable energy sector in North America, there were several positive announcements from the US and Mexican governments. We expect these announcements to act as a catalyst for accelerated growth in the sector in the near and longer term. The passing of the Inflation Reduction Act in the US last August provides both long term certainty on tax incentives to support the development of renewable energy projects as well as at least U$369B of new investment, which will be directed towards energy security and climate change with the goal to cut US carbon emissions by approximately 40% by 2030. We expect this to drive interest and demand for renewable energy development projects at all stages of development particularly as projects move towards RTB."

"Recently we have also seen a significant positive policy shift by the Mexican government, that follows a number of years of uncertainty for the renewable energy sector in the country. As part of the COP 27 proceedings, Mexico has pledged to reach 40GW of deployed wind and solar generation capacity by 2030 with the strategy of reducing its greenhouse gas emissions by 35%. In order to meet this 40GW target it will require the addition of 10GW of new renewable energy capacity over the next 8 years or 1.25GW per year. With Revolve's successful track record in Mexico and an advanced pipeline of competitive wind projects totaling 1.6GW, we anticipate more clarity from the government on private sector involvement in delivering this ambitious target." 

Key Highlights:

Utility Scale Development Portfolio:

  • 250MW Parker Solar and Storage Project - Successful Completion of BLM Variance Process – The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) approved the project for further processing after the completion of the BLM variance process. The approval process consists of completion of an environmental review in accordance with National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The Parker Project is a 250MW utility scale solar and storage project located in Arizona and enjoys great infrastructure in its vicinity. There is excellent access through existing state road network and proximity to transmission infrastructure with interconnection within one mile. The Parker Project is moving towards mid-stage of development with target ready to build timeline of 2024. Once ready this project has the capacity to provide electricity to an equivalent of 300,000 homes. (https://money.tmx.com/en/quote/REVV/news/5885556774207448/Revolve_Successfully_

    )

  • Vernal BESS Project - 80MWh/20MW project located in Utah on land administered by State Land Trust. This project is the first stand-alone BESS project Revolve has in the US. The Vernal Project has excellent access through existing and local road network and is close to existing transmission infrastructure. Plans for development activity will be ramped up for 2023 with a focus on completion of phase two study of the interconnection process. Environmental permitting work has also commenced. This includes: a plan of development for the project, cultural resource survey and a conditional use and easement permit for the construction of transmission line connecting to the nearest substation.

    )

  • Primus Wind Project - a 49.6MW wind project located in Colorado, one of the main wind energy states in the US. This project is easily accessed by existing and local road network and is near the local transmission network. Revolve has signed 25-year lease agreements with the landowners to allow for the construction and operation of the Primus Project. The Company is planning to continue the development of this project in 2023. The scope of work planned as part of the development is: completing the permitting schedule for the Project, collection of 12 months of wind data by installing a meteorological mast (met mast) which will outline the electricity expected to be generated by the project and basic engineering work for preliminary design, layout, and location of the wind turbines. A ready to build date for this project is targeted during 2024. The project will have the capacity to provide electricity to an equivalent of 60,000 homes.

Distribution Generation Projects:

  • Acquired 100% of Centrica Business Solutions (Mexico):  this acquisition provided Revolve with seven (7) DG projects out of which six (6) are in operation with an energy capacity of 2.85MW and one under construction awaiting final permitting and expected to be operational in H1 2023. The project under construction will have an energy capacity of 3MW. These projects are a combination of roof top solar, battery storage, Combined Heat and Power (CHP) and other energy efficiency solutions. The Centrica acquisition provides Revolve with an increase in almost 6MW of energy in its portfolio, a forecasted recurring long-term revenue of U$1.4m and EBITDA of U$700,000 once fully operational. Revolve paid U$1.4m for this acquisition and it was financed through RE Royalties using a secured loan and a royalty agreement.

  • Additional 3.2MWh BESS project - the Company signed a ten-year Energy Services Agreement (ESA) for its first Battery Storage System (BESS) providing Revolve with an additional 3.2MWh in energy capacity increasing the Company's DG capacity both operational and under construction by 50% to approximately 9MWh. Revolve owns this project and is responsible for financing, installation, and operation. The project will be installed at the site of a hotel chain in Cancun Mexico. Installation work is underway with a target operational date of Q1 2023. This project was also financed through RE Royalties using a secured loan and a royalty agreement.

  • Expansion of DG Pipeline – the Company has continued to grow its pipeline of DG project opportunities since establishing its new division, Revolve Renewable Business Solutions earlier this year. The current pipeline is in excess of 60MW and covers a range of different rooftop solar, battery storage and CHP projects in Mexico. The company has also commenced the early assessment of DG opportunities in the US and Canada and expects further opportunities to arise over the next 12 months.

Full Financial and Management's Discussion and Analysis for Q1 2022 are posted on the Company's website,  https://revolve-renewablepower.com/financials/ as well as on SEDAR (www.sedar.com).
