A San Antonio-based developer is planning a 100-megawatt (MW) solar farm in Falls County. “Project Corona” will fill an 800-acre plot of land leased from private owners. It’s slated to begin construction in October with completion scheduled for November 2021.
Wind and solar energy production surpassed coal energy generation in Texas last year, according to a new report from the Electric Reliability Council of Texas. Most of that is attributable to wind, which made up 20.01% of the state’s power generation in 2019. However, solar energy generation is poised to increase by 30x its current level (1.15% of Texas’s power generation in 2019).
Another BIG solar farm has been turned on in West Texas! The 100 MWac ‘West of the Pecos’ solar farm is located in Reeves County, Texas, approximately 75 miles southwest of Midland-Odessa. The project utilizes nearly 350,000 solar modules spanning 700 acres!
