Matrix Renewables and rPlus Energies have broken ground on the 200 megawatts ac Pleasant Valley Solar in Ada County, Idaho.
Matrix Renewables acquired a controlling interest in Pleasant Valley Solar from rPlus Energies earlier this summer. rPlus Energies, the original developer of the project, retains a minority interest in the project.
Upon commencing operations, the solar project will be the largest solar facility in Idaho Power's service territory and will deliver output into the same grid that supports Meta’s new data center in Kuna, Idaho.
“rPlus is proud to work with Meta and Idaho Power as long-term partners to help achieve their sustainability goals and manage the region’s transition to renewable energy,” said Luigi Resta, president & CEO of rPlus Energies. “We are equally proud to partner with Matrix Renewables, who share our deep respect and commitment to renewable power generation for Ada County and the surrounding community.”
