The Phoebe photovoltaic solar project, located in Winkler County in Texas, is Innergex’s largest solar project to date with an installed capacity of 250 MWAC (315 MWDC). With an average annual power generation expected to reach 715,800 MWh, enough to power more than 50,000 Texan households, Phoebe is, at the time of its commissioning in November 2019, the largest solar farm in the State of Texas. The solar farm is sited on approximately 3,500 acres of land and is comprised of 768,000 First Solar Series 6 thin film photovoltaic solar panels that will be operated by the panel manufacturer under a 5-year operation and maintenance contract.
The total output from the Phoebe solar farm is sold to the ERCOT power grid and 89% of the energy produced receives a fixed price under a 12-year power purchase agreement with Shell Energy North America. The remainder of the project’s output receives a merchant market price.
