San Francisco-based Recurrent Energy has won a contract to build a 150-megawatt solar farm for Austin Energy, one of the biggest municipal utilities in the United States. “While Recurrent would build the largest single facility in Texas, the total capacity in the 20-year deal is second to San Antonio’s agreement with OCI Solar Power to build several solar plants with a combined capacity of 359-megawatts, expected to funnel electricity to the city-owned CPS Energy by 2016,” the Chronicle reported.
