How did Texas accelerate the energy transition with ENGIE’s solar energy solution?

Four local municipalities in Texas – New Braunfels Utilities (NBU), Denton Municipal Electric (DME), Garland Power & Light (GP&L), and the Kerrville Public Utility Board (KPUB) – have united with a common objective: to expedite the energy transition within their communities. Their mission is to enhance the resilience of their electricity supply by procuring sustainable, cost-effective solar energy over the long term. The ultimate objective was to empower their citizens with access to dependable and economical clean energy solutions.

The ENGIE Solution: The biggest solar farm in the United States of America

The Long Draw project perfectly aligns with ENGIE’s strategy of expediting the transition to a carbon-neutral economy. Through the execution of a long-term Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) featuring stable pricing, ENGIE has effectively financed and finalized the Long Draw solar project at the Borden County site in Texas, which commenced operations in December 2020. With a capacity to generate 225 MW of solar electricity, Long Draw stands as ENGIE’s largest solar project in the United States to date. Presently, it provides renewable energy to all four local authorities.
