Yet another solar company is looking cash in on the wide-open skies of West Texas.
Paris-based Solairedirect has announced plans for a two-phase, 100-megawatt solar farm on a ranch about 14 miles east of Alpine in rural Brewster County. By the company’s estimates, the plant could bring power to about 25,000 homes.
It would rival California competitor Recurrent Energy’s plans to build its own 150-megawatt plant in West Texas. Recurrent hasn’t yet said where exactly in the region it will build what would be the state’s largest single solar facility.
