ENGIE North America has signed a power purchase agreement (PPA) to expand its clean energy portfolio in Texas.

The PPA was signed with Target Solar for the provision of 89MW of solar energy generated at the Sand Fork Solar plant.

Once operational in 2021, the solar plant will generate energy to power customers of ENGIE North America for a period of 15 years.

Annually, the plant will generate 250,000MW for ENGIE customers, enough energy to power 250,000 homes for a whole month.

The project is expected to contribute to ENGIE achieving its goals set under the Client Solutions pillar which includes developing at least 2.5 GW of wind and solar capacities in the next 3 years in the US and Canada.

Worldwide, ENGIE has plans to add 9GW of renewables by 2021 to its existing 24GW as at the end of 2018.

“We truly value the opportunity to support Target in its commitment to source electricity from renewables,” said Gwenaelle Avice-Huet, CEO of ENGIE North America. “By serving Target with the Sand Fork Project, we’re proud to help shape a sustainable future for customers and communities and reinforce our ambition to lead the zero-carbon transition.”
