Pattern Energy Group said it completed construction and began operations at its 83 MW Phoenix Solar Project in Fannin County, Texas, northeast of Dallas.

Phoenix Solar uses First Solar Series 6 modules and NEXTracker NX Horizon trackers. Mortenson Construction provided engineering and construction services for the project. Phoenix Solar has a 65 MWac, 12-year power purchase agreement with Digital Realty.

ING Capital LLC provided construction and term project financing and tax equity was provided by RBC Community Investments , a unit of RBC. Pattern Energy acquired the development rights to the Phoenix Solar project in 2018 from Alpin Sun, a solar developer.

Digital Realty is a real estate investment trust that invests in carrier-neutral data centers and provides colocation and other services. The company has a data center in Richardson, Texas, around an hour away from the solar farm.

The Phoenix Solar facility expands Pattern Energy’s existing operating platform in Texas to a total of 1,037 MW of capacity in operation at six facilities across the state.
