Phoenix Solar secures EPC contract for 19.6 MW Texas solar plant

Phoenix Solar, a subsidiary of Phoenix Solar AG, has been chosen by renewable energy company Apex to provide engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services for a 19.6 MW solar project in Texas.

The facility, once complete, will provide clean solar energy for the U.S. Army Garrison Fort Hood in Killeen. The solar project will be co-located with Apex’ Cotton Plains wind plant in Floyd County, which is in arid Llano Estacado region near the Texas Panhandle. The two projects will share transmission to supply electricity to Fort Hood.

“Apex is among the most active companies in the U.S. renewables market, providing energy solutions for the corporate and public sector markets,” said Phoenix Solar AG CEO Tim P. Ryan. “We are very pleased to contribute our EPC to the solar part of their projects.”

The Fort Hood project will be Phoenix Solar’s first in the state of Texas, and also its first dabble in constructing part of a hybrid renewable energy plant in the United States.
