Invenergy Announces 1.3GW Series of Solar Projects in Texas

Emma Foehringer Merchant on Greentech Media reports that Invenergy is building a 1.3GW solar project in Texas.

The C3 Take
  • Once completed, this will be the largest solar project in the United States.
  • The project is expected to yield $250 million for private landowners and create about 600 jobs during construction.

“The greatest portion of Samson’s power output will go to telecommunications giant AT&T, which has signed a power-purchase agreement for 500 megawatts of capacity — a record purchase for the United States in the commercial and industrial domain. Honda is the next largest offtaker with 200 megawatts. McDonald’s will offtake 160 megawatts, the city of Bryan, Texas snapped up 150 megawatts, and Google contracted for 100 megawatts. Home Depot and the cities of Denton and Garland also each contracted for slices of under 100 megawatts. Invenergy declined to provide details on the contract prices.”
