RES to Build 50 MW Solar Project in West Texas

By Editors of Power Engineering

Renewable Energy Systems announced it will design and construct a 50 MW solar facility in West Texas. Formerly known as Lamesa II, the project is now known as Project Ivory Solar Facility.

RES recently sold the project to OCI Solar Power, which secured a power purchase agreement with CPS Energy.

BNB Renewable Energy Holdings began developing the project in 2013 and entered into a joint development with RES in 2015 to complete the project. Construction is set to begin in March with commercial operations set for November.

“This project is our fifth solar project in Texas, having already constructed more than 180 MW in the state,” said Chad Horton, VP, RES Development, Americas. “We look forward to working with BNB and OCI Solar Power to bring more solar energy online in Texas. RES has been committed to bringing jobs, economic benefits, and renewable energy to the state, having developed and or constructed more than 3,100 MW of projects to date.”
