Ørsted has taken a final investment decision on the Old 300 Solar Center, which is located in Fort Bend County, 40 miles from Houston, Texas, and is expected to come online in Q2 2022.

Over the past year, Ørsted has significantly increased its solar portfolio, and with the addition of Old 300 now has 1.1 GW of solar PV under construction, making a total of 3.4 GW of capacity in operation and under construction across onshore wind, solar PV and storage.

Vishal Kapadia, chief commercial officer for Ørsted Onshore commented: "Solar is the fastest-growing power generation technology in the world and will continue to play a key role in our growth going forward."

The project will create a dependable income source for family ranches that lease their land for the project. Furthermore, project construction will create up to 400 jobs at its peak.

Old 300 Solar Center will cover an area of 2800 acres and utilise approximately 1 million bifacial modules, supplied by JA Solar and LONGi Solar. Inverters will be supplied by SMA America.
