Taygete Energy Project

Pecos County, Texas

At 250 MWac, the Taygete phase 1 project is one of the largest solar projects to be built in the state of Texas.


 

Solar energy from the Taygete facility will be sold under a multi-year fixed priced power purchase agreement, which will bring the total developed by 7X in ERCOT to 350 MW.
