In the last few days, Enel Green Power gave the green light for construction to start on the new Roadrunner PV solar park in Upton county, Texas.

Once completed, Roadrunner is set to become the largest solar facility in Enel’s US portfolio at 497 MW and the largest solar project in the Lone Star State. This is the company’s second project to begin construction in Texas in 2019, following the 450 MW High Lonesome wind project in January. 

 

“Roadrunner represents the latest major milestone for Enel’s operations in the US renewable market, where we have already started construction of projects for almost 1 GW this year.”

– Georgios Papadimitriou, Head of Enel Green Power North America

 

Enel Green Power has devised a plan for Roadrunner to go online in two phases. The first phase, totaling 252 MW is expected to be complete by the end of 2019, while the remaining 245 MW of capacity is expected to be up and running by the end of 2020. Once fully operational, the solar plant will be able to generate 1.2 TWh annually, while offsetting emissions of over 800,000 tons of CO2 per year.

 

“The US market is rich with opportunities for growth and has an increasing appetite for sustainable electricity. Projects like Roadrunner demonstrate our ability to capitalise on this trend, while boosting the diversity of the business both geographically and technologically.”

– Georgios Papadimitriou, Head of Enel Green Power North America

 

In Texas, Enel Green Power is currently operating the 63 MW Snyder wind farm, located in Scurry County while constructing the 450 MW High Lonesome wind project, part of which is also located in Upton County, Texas.
