Holstein Solar Project
The 200-megawatt Holstein Solar Project will be Duke Energy Renewables’ third solar generation facility in Texas and one of the largest solar projects in its fleet, once complete. The project, which will power the equivalent of 40,000 homes, will contain over 709,000 solar panels across approximately 1,300 acres in Wingate, Texas. Much of the energy generated from the Holstein Solar Project will be sold through a 12-year term hedge agreement to J. Aron & Company LLC, a subsidiary of Goldman Sachs. This is the first Duke Energy Renewables solar project to utilize a hedge agreement.
The facility’s design, procurement of inverters, balance of plant systems and construction of the project are being performed by Blattner Energy.
