Invenergy plans to build a massive 1,310 MW Solar Project in Texas

Last Updated on 08th January 2024

Invenergy – a multinational American based company in Chicago, is a global developer which operates on power generation projects and provides energy storage facilities in America, Europe, and Asia. Currently, Invenergy is working on a 1,310-megawatt solar power plant known as Samson Solar Energy Centre in north-eastern Texas, located at Franklin, Lamar, and Red River counties.

 

The Gemini Solar Project, the 7,100-acre solar farm in Las Vegas, Nevada, can generate 690 MW of energy and 380 MW of storage capacity claiming to be the largest solar power station in U.S.

 

However, Samson Solar Energy Center will now be entitled as the largest solar power plant in the United States upon completion instead of the Gemini Solar Project. With a $1.6 billion investment, the project is expected to be completed in 36-months. It will be constructed in five stages. Each step will embark on operations upon execution. The entire project will be operational in 2023.

 

Agreements have been made to provide a feasible power supply to five consumer brands AT&T, Honda, McDonald's, Google, Home Depot, along with three municipalities in Texas that is Bryan Texas utilities, City of Denton, Garland Power & Light. The following table provides a clear insight into the amounts of power supply to each establishment as per their agreement.

 

 

The president of AT&T Technology and Operations, Mr. Scott Mair, said: "At AT&T, we believe renewable energy is good for the planet, for our business, and for the communities we serve, with more than 1.5 gigawatts of renewable energy capacity, our portfolio delivers clean electricity to the grid, helps to create jobs and community benefits, and supports the transition to a low-carbon economy. We're excited to participate in Invenergy's Samson project through the largest corporate solar energy deal in the U.S."

 

Invenergy's senior vice president Ted Romaine said: "Invenergy continues to lead the energy transition, and this record-setting project demonstrates our expertise at a new scale."
