Solar Project in Texas Has Begun Commercial Operation

Industry News – Thursday, July 09, 2020

Operator 8minute Solar Energy announced the start of the 280 MW solar project that contains over 700,000 solar panels.

While powering 40,000 homes, the Holstein solar project also employed 400 workers during construction. Another four 8minute projects in Texas are already in late stages of development and will provide nearly one gigawatt of clean energy after completion.

“We are bringing our utility-scale project development expertise to forge a new energy model in Texas,” said Dr. Tom Buttgenbach, President and CEO of 8minute. “In a state with no solar mandate, and where competition is purely on price, our success with Holstein and our other Texas projects are proof positive that solar will power the future.”
