The Longbow BESS project, owned by Tokyo Gas America, a wholly owned subsidiary of Tokyo Gas Co. Ltd., further solidifies the collaborative efforts of industry leaders towards a greener and more sustainable future.

“Longbow BESS represents a significant step forward in our commitment to providing clean and reliable energy solutions,” said Ken Kiriishi, Senior Vice President, Tokyo Gas America. “We are delighted to partner with Foss & Company and Clean Capital Partners on this groundbreaking project.
