Enel Green Power North America has started construction on two new solar + storage projects in Texas. In addition, the company will add batteries to the already operational Roadrunner solar farm.
The Roseland solar + storage project in Falls County, Texas, will consist of 639.6 MW of solar and 59 MW of energy storage. In Grimes County, Texas, the Blue Jay solar + storage project will pair a 270-MW solar plant with a 59- MW battery system.
“The American transition to clean energy is unstoppable, and Enel Green Power North America is playing a leading role,” said Salvatore Bernabei, CEO of Enel Green Power and Head of Enel’s Global Power Generation business line. “With more than 2 GW now under construction in the United States, more than ever before, we are creating value with communities, partners, and our entire value chain, helping meet the ambitious clean energy targets of policymakers and businesses alike.”
Enel will retrofit the 497-MW Roadrunner solar farm in West Texas with a 57-MW energy storage system. Construction will begin this summer.
