A 30 MW solar farm in Webberville, Texas began generating power on December 20, 2011. The project is the biggest in the state, the largest solar project of any utility in the country and one of the largest in the country overall.
The 380-acre Webberville Solar Project contains 127,000 PV panels that track the sun to maximize electricity output. The project has a 25-year power purchase agreement with Austin Energy, the country's leading utility for renewable energy. This new solar farm will put the utility well on its way to getting 35 percent of its portfolio from renewable sources by 2020.
The project is expected to generate 1.4 billion kWh over the first 25 years and prevent the release of 1.6 billion pounds of CO2 into the atmosphere in that same time frame.
