PSEG dedicates 13 MW solar power facility in Texas

PSEG Solar Source, a subsidiary of PSEG Power (NYSE: PEG), joined El Paso Electric (EPE) and juwi solar (JSI) to dedicate its 13-MW El Paso Solar Center.

The plant is located on 100-acre site adjacent to the existing El Paso Electric Newman Generating Station. EPE will purchase power generated at the site under a 30-year power purchase agreement.

The project will offset more than 26,000 metric tons of CO2 and brings EPE’s total dedicated energy generation from renewable sources to six percent.

JSI built and will operate the facility.
