A 1-MWac solar project by TurningPoint Energy, Kenyon Energy and Axium Solar was recently completed for the Concho Valley Electric Cooperative (CVEC) in West Texas. The clean energy produced by the facility will be sold under a power purchase agreement to CVEC, an electric distribution cooperative serving 7,155 members in 10 Texas counties.
The Agnes Project supported 50 jobs in Texas in the form of consultants, engineers, construction and related workers. This project will also generate additional property tax revenue for Irion County. Ongoing maintenance and operations of the plant will be managed by Bay4 Energy.
“We’re really excited about providing a new and innovative energy option to our members that they haven’t had before. So many of our members have told us that they want solar, but they haven’t found it affordable to install at their residence, or that their residence simply is not conducive to a solar installation,” said Kelly Lankford, Executive VP/CEO of Concho Valley Electric Cooperative. “The Agnes Project provides all of our members the opportunity to have a solar energy option at a cost-competitive price. The Board and I cannot express enough how grateful we are for Scooter Scott and his family for providing the land that made this project possible.”
