Solar PV developer 8minutenergy Renewables said it had started operations in Texas to develop and acquire over 2GW of utility-scale PV power plant projects in the state. 

The company said that it recently opened an office in Houston to head-up its plans in Texas.

“We captured nearly 15 percent market share in California, which is one of the toughest solar markets in the world. We are excited to replicate our proven model and execution-oriented approach in Texas,” said Martin Hermann, 8minutenergy’s CEO and founder. “We believe in partnership, transparency, and innovation, which are traits that are already proving beneficial in our early stage project development achievements across the Lone Star State.”

The company said that it currently had over 5GW of PV plans in its North America project pipeline.
