The project will be operated by Flexitricity with Green Nation set to provide asset management services, while Anesco will provide operations and maintenance services.

Chris Tanner, Investment Manager for JLEN commented: “Seeing JLEN’s first battery storage investment become operational is a significant milestone for the Company.
