FirstLight is a leading renewable energy producer and developer, with a growing portfolio of hydroelectric, pumped-hydro energy storage, large-scale battery storage, solar, and offshore wind assets.

We operate dozens of facilities across North America and proudly serve our host communities and beyond through our clean energy assets, the jobs we produce, and the role our assets play in supporting the reliability of the energy grid.

Our Hybrid Approach

At FirstLight, we specialize in curating hybrid renewable energy solutions that pair different technologies such as hydroelectric, pumped-hydro storage, solar, large-scale battery, and offshore wind to create reliable clean energy for the communities we serve.

Offshore Wind + Pumped Hydro Storage

As the development of offshore wind accelerates and we approach the U.S. goal of reaching 30 gigawatts of offshore wind energy by 2030, the need for storage assets like pumped-hydro to store and release energy as the grid demands grows. 

Pumped-hydro energy storage resources like our flagship facility at Northfield Mountain are well suited to pair with offshore wind generation. Pairing offshore wind and large-scale pumped hydro energy storage drastically improves the flexibility of the wind energy and helps to maximize the value of our renewable generation.

Solar + Hydroelectric + Battery Storage

Solar, hydroelectricity, and energy storage are all critical to our efforts to fully decarbonize the electric grid. Here at FirstLight we are working to combine these different technologies to drastically we improve both the flexibility and reliability of these clean resources.

By taking this approach, FirstLight is helping advance an electric system that is clean, reliable, affordable, and equitable.
