PHOEBE ENERGY PROJECT

At 315 MWp, the Phoebe facility is the largest solar projects built in Texas.

 

The Phoebe facility, located in Winkler County, Texas, on over 1,900 acres of land, is currently the largest solar project 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.

project benefits

  • Environmental

Phoebe will produce approximately 738,000 MWh of renewable energy in its first year of operation. This equates1 to:

  • Carbon sequestered by almost 415,000 acres of forest in one year
  • Reduction in greenhouse gas emissions of almost 75,000 cars off the road for one year
  • Reduction in CO2 emissions of over 53,000 homes’ electricity use for one year
  • Economic
  • Over the life of the facility, Phoebe will inject millions of dollars in property tax revenue into Winkler County
