Start of second phase
Enel Green Power has started operations at the 245 MW second phase of its Roadrunner solar plant.
Enel Green Power is committed to creating long-term shared value for the community and the company and plans to make local investments focused on education and emergency response. On behalf of the Roadrunner solar project as well as the nearby High Lonesome wind project, Enel Green Power has provided support in McCamey, Texas, for the McCamey Wellness Center and a forthcoming downtown farmers market. Over the life of the project, Roadrunner will generate approximately $60 million in new tax revenue for the local community.
Work Progress Status
Construction of the first phase of the Roadrunner solar project took place throughout 2019. While operations have begun at the first phase, construction is now underway on the second phase, with operations expected by the end of 2020. The construction process follows Enel Green Power’s Sustainable Construction Site model, a collection of best practices aimed at minimizing the impact of plant construction on the environment, waste, water and people.

The Roadrunner project will establish its long-term operations & maintenance building in downtown McCamey, renovating an existing building and contributing to the local economy.
Roadrunner is the largest EGP solar in the world using bifacial technology at large scale. Bifacial solar modules capture sunlight from the reflection off the ground, doubling the solar energy production.
