Duke Energy starts operations of 144MW Pflugerville solar farm

02 Aug 2021

The electric power company Duke Energy has commissioned the 144MW Pflugerville solar farm in Travis County, Texas, US. 

The solar facility covers an area of 932 acres and will be able to generate enough energy to power approximately 27,000 homes. It has nearly 489,600 Canadian Solar bifacial BiKu modules and is the fifth utility-scale solar facility commissioned by the company in Texas.

Under a 15-year power purchase agreement (PPA), the energy generated by the Texas solar project will be sold to Austin Energy. Furthermore, an unregulated commercial brand of the company, named Duke Energy Sustainable Solutions, has brought the solar facility in Texas into commercial operation.

Expected to be online at the end of 2022, the company began construction of its sixth solar facility in Navarro County, Texas, the 250MW Pisgah Ridge solar project, earlier this year.
