HREG Quarterly Meeting – Houston’s 30 MW Solar Power Deal

February 25 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Last November, the City of Houston announced that it will be purchasing 30 MW of solar power from Hecate Energy through its retail electric provider, Reliant Energy. This is a 20-year power purchase agreement; not just renewable energy credits (RECs). The facility will be located in West Texas near Alpine, and Reliant Energy will transport the solar power to the City’s meters.

The solar power deal continues Houston’s leadership as a solar city, and cements its top ranking on EPA’s list of government green power users (and #6 position on EPA’s top 100 ranking).
