San Antonio-based OCI Solar Power LLC has started construction on the 110 MW Alamo 6 solar plant, located in Pecos County, Texas.
The Alamo 6 plant, located on approximately 1,200 acres of private land, is part of a 400 MW project OCI Solar Power is constructing for CPS Energy, Greater San Antonio's energy company. OCI Solar Power has contracted with Mortenson Construction to build the project.
The plant will be developed, owned and operated by OCI Solar Power and will feature locally made products from the company's affiliates, including a dual-axis tracker system from Sun Action Trackers and solar modules from Mission Solar Energy. Inverters will be supplied by KACO new energy, also located in San Antonio.
‘The Alamo 6 project will be built using components that are made exclusively in San Antonio,’ says S.H. Yoon, president and CEO of OCI Solar Power. ‘Our agreement with CPS Energy demonstrates the economic development capacity that we bring to the communities we serve. We are excited to begin construction on what will be the largest solar plant in Texas.’
Construction is scheduled to be complete during the fourth quarter of 2016.
