Pattern Energy completes 83-MW Texas solar installation

Pattern Energy Group announced it has successfully completed construction and begun operations at its 83-MWAC Phoenix Solar Project located in Fannin County, Texas.

“Phoenix Solar is the latest example of Pattern Energy’s expanding activities in solar power and continued investment in Texas. This new solar facility is creating strong benefits with more than $15 million in revenue for Fannin County and the local schools, while producing clean power for 20,000 homes,” said Mike Garland, CEO of Pattern Energy. “New renewable energy sources like Phoenix Solar make sense for communities because they are the cheapest form of new power and their investments return jobs, growth and positive economic impact in the rural areas where they are developed.”

Phoenix Solar uses First Solar Series 6 modules and NEXTracker NX Horizon trackers. Mortenson Construction provided engineering and construction services for the project. The project has a 65 MWAC, 12-year power purchase agreement with Digital Realty.

“We are pleased to further expand our renewable energy portfolio in Texas,” said Aaron Binkley, senior director of sustainability for Digital Realty . “We place a high priority on sourcing net-new renewables local to our data centers. Phoenix Solar, located less than an hour’s drive from our Richardson, Texas data center campus, does just that.”
