Solar projects achieve significant milestones in Texas

21 February 2023

OCI Solar Power has now originated more than 3 GW of utility-scale solar projects in Texas.

In 2021, Buckeye Partners acquired OCI Solar Power's construction-ready Project Parker. The 200 MWac project located in Falls County is now supplying electricity to the ERCOT electrical grid. And in 2022, OCI Solar Power sold its construction-ready Project SunRay to Israel-based Arava Power and Paz Oil. It is now under construction on 1800 acres of privately-owned land in Uvalde County.

OCI Solar Power had previously developed 500 MWac in collaboration with CPS Energy, the nation's largest public power, natural gas, and electric company. These projects began operations between 2012 and 2019.

In addition, OCI Solar Power has established a development pipeline in excess of 2 GW of projects located throughout the state, at locations in Bell, Dickens, Falls, Hill, Kent, La Salle, McClennan, and Wharton counties. It is also developing a 100 MWac battery energy storage system in Bexar County with more planned. The company expects several of its projects to reach their commercial operation dates in 2024 and 2025.
