Houston Solar Co. Looking to Expand East

December 6, 2017


First Solar is planning to expand eastward out of Texas and is looking at two sites in Alabama for a possible solar farm.

The Arizona- and Houston-based proposed $149 million solar farm would tie into the Tennessee Valley Authority’s 161 kilovolt lines, and could provide up to 230 MW, enough power for up to 35,000 homes, and would be operational in 2020.

The sties are near Florence, about 65 miles west of Huntsville, Alabama, according to the Florence Times Daily in Alabama.
