At 315 MWp, the Phoebe facility will be one of the largest solar projects built in Texas.
The Phoebe facility, located in Winkler County, Texas, on over 1,900 acres of land, will be one of the largest solar projects built in the state of Texas and one of the 10 largest solar photovoltaic (PV) projects in the United States. Solar energy from the Phoebe project will be sold to Shell Energy North America through a 12-year power purchase agreement. The project will provide over $390M investment into West Texas .
7X Energy originally developed and owned the project, but in late 2016, 7X sold the project to Longroad Energy and stayed on as a joint developer* on the project successfully bringing it to the start of construction. Innergex acquired the project from Longroad at financial close on July 2, 2018.
