Taygete Energy Project

Pecos County, Texas

At 690 MWp, the Taygete Energy Project will be the largest solar project 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 over 800 MWp.
