Operations have commenced at the 168-MW Coniglio Solar Project in Fannin County, Texas.
The Coniglio project comprises 404,712 Q.PEAK DUO L-G8.2 415W solar modules, supplied by Q CELLS America and 42 inverters. The facility is interconnected in the North ERCOT load zone and is the largest project in Q CELLS’ operating portfolio to date in the U.S.
The project was acquired mid-development in February 2020, and the Q CELLS team completed the work on financing, interconnection, land, revenue contracting, engineering and procurement. Construction of the project commenced in June 2020 and mechanical completion was reached in June 2021.
“The Coniglio Solar Project is well-sited, and there is a growing need for power in the ERCOT market,” said Dave Kirkwood, Tenaska senior VP of finance.
