The first 41MW phase of a planned 400MW multi-site solar PV project is now operating in San Antonio, Texas, and will provide electricity for 6,600 homes served by municipal utility CPS Energy.

"Alamo I is an interesting milestone because it's now the largest solar farm in Texas, but it's still a small part of what is to come," says Tony Dorazio, chief executive of OCI Solar Power, which owns and operates the facility. "Alamo I is only step one to Texas' rise as a big player in solar."  

CPS Energy will buy all the power under a 25-year contract from what will be the largest US municipal utility solar project when completed in 2016 - enough electricity for about 70,000 homes. This will be about 10% of the utility’s residential customers, according Log in to read complete article.
