Photovoltaic – Texas: Fort Bend, with 317 MW, under construction, Acciona’s first photovoltaic plant in the country

It’s a statement, it is specified that Fort Bend will involve an investment of 280 million dollars, and that during the peak of the construction phase it will mean the creation of around 450 jobs.

The plant is expected to be operational in 2022, when it will avoid more than 400,000 metric tons of CO2 emitted annually, equivalent to removing more than 95,000 vehicles from the road and the carbon mitigated by almost 450,000 trees a year, it is claimed.

The project, among other data provided, will be part of Acciona’s Social Impact Management program, which reinvests part of the annual income in community efforts to improve education, well-being and environmental management.

In Texas, Acciona also owns and operates three wind farms, with more than 400 MW of capacity. In total, the company operates more than 1 GW of wind power in the United States, as well as the 64 MW Nevada Solar One thermosolar plant.
