174 Power Global Corporation broke ground on the 150-MW Oberon Solar Power Facility in Ector County, Texas. The company also announced the launch of a new retail affiliate, Chariot Energy, to facilitate the delivery of affordable, clean energy to customers across Texas.
The project will use Hanwha Q CELL modules and be completed in the spring of 2020. Oberon is 174 Power Global’s second solar project in Texas.
“West Texas has some of the most productive sun in the state, and Ector County is a welcoming, business-friendly area,” said 174 Power Global President Henry Yun, PhD. “174 Power Global is committed to producing solar power at Oberon at a price that is competitive with other forms of generation.”
Additionally, Chariot Energy, a subsidiary of 174 Power Global, commenced operations this week, offering simple, transparent and reliable solar electricity products to consumers and businesses in the Texas market. The Public Utility Commission of Texas granted Chariot Energy its Option 1 Texas retail electric provider certificate in March and authority to use the trade name Chariot Energy in May.
“The launch of Chariot Energy is a natural complement to the U.S. solar manufacturing and generation services already provided by our affiliated companies,” said Chariot Energy COO Mohsin Khoja. “The company’s integration and backing from 174 Power Global along with other affiliates enable Chariot to bring clean, renewable electricity directly to consumers at an affordable price point.”
