Innovative Solar Systems is offering two large-scale PV projects in Texas for immediate acquisition. One installation is a 300MW PV project located in Jones County, Texas, while the other project is a 125MW solar installation in Fisher County, Texas.
The 300MW project has an expected IA of December 2020 and a COD of February 2023, while the 125MW site has an expected IA of January 2020 and a COD of December 2021.
The PV sector in Texas has continued to incorporate more and more large-scale installations into the pipeline, including a number in the last couple of weeks alone.
Back in late November, Innergex announced that it had commissioned the 250MWac / 315MWdc Phoebe PV project located in Winkler County, Texas. The site, which will boast an average annual power generation expected to be sufficient enough to power more than 50,000 Texan households, is tabbed by Innergex as the largest solar farm currently in operation in Texas.
Earlier that same month, ENGIE North America broke ground on the 225MW Long Draw Solar Project in Texas, which will serve four Texas municipalities (New Braunfels, Denton, Garland, and Kerrville) and their respective electric utilities.
The Long Draw Solar Project, located in Borden County, Texas, is expected to come online in the summer of 2020 and will be the largest solar project to date in ENGIE’s portfolio. The site will feature more than 800,000 solar panels, employ some 150 people during its peak construction phase and generate total estimated tax payments to Borden County and the Borden County Independent School District of more than US$10 million over the life of the project.
