Invenergy has announced a 1,310-megawatt solar-energy generation facility currently under construction in northeast Texas.
Located in Lamar, Red River and Franklin Counties, Samson Solar is a $1.6 billion capital investment and will be constructed in five phases over the next three years, with each phase commencing operation upon completion.
Upon completion, it will be the largest solar-energy generation facility in the United States, producing enough energy to power nearly 300,000 American homes. In addition, the Samson Solar Energy Center will support the sustainability objectives of five major consumer brands and supply power to three Texas municipalities.
The full project is slated to be operational in 2023.
Invenergy has contracted more than 3,500 megawatts of wind and solar capacity to help more than 20 different corporate users across six U.S. markets and in Mexico to reach their sustainability and clean-energy goas.
