Ismael Guerrero, CEO of Recurrent Energy, said, "We are delighted to collaborate with Epic Energy once again on the sale of our third project to them. Australia is a rapidly growing market for renewable energy and our latest transaction with Epic Energy supports the country's efforts to decarbonize in a sustainable way. We look forward to continuing to advance our robust pipeline of energy storage and solar projects in Australia."
