Integrated energy firm CS Energy has successfully completed a 32.7-MWdc portfolio of solar projects in Texas, which will generate enough renewable energy to power more than 5,000 homes each year.
The Texas portfolio is comprised of three separate properties: a 14.5-MW project located in Brooks County; a 7.3-MW site in McLennan County; and a 10.9-MW project in Menard County. The three sites are separated by 500 miles but were developed simultaneously.
The Brooks County project uses Sunfolding trackers and the other two sites use Array Technologies trackers. CS Energy provided engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services for all three sites and successfully completed the projects on time.
CS Energy has built nearly 1 GW of projects across the country, and this is the company’s largest project in Texas to date. The team worked directly with individual landowners to address intricate issues like fencing, a harsh environment, distant, remote locations and supply-chain constraints.
“As a national EPC, it’s imperative that our solar projects meet our rigorous standards no matter the conditions,” said Matthew Skidmore, CEO of CS Energy. “I’m proud that we have met the challenges of this multifaceted project and am pleased to deliver a solar energy portfolio that will make clean energy more accessible for the residents and businesses of Texas.”
The Texas solar projects provide power directly to two separate utilities, with the McLennan and Menard County sites supplying energy to Oncor Electric Delivery and the Brooks County site delivering solar power to AEP Energy.
