Armadillo Solar Center, LLC
Located in Navarro County, Texas, the 200MW Armadillo Solar Center will use over 600,000 solar panels mounted in single-axis tracker arrays that follow the sun to generate more than 440,000MWh of energy annually, or enough energy to power almost 42,500 U.S. homes. The Armadillo Solar Center helps meet the energy needs of the state by providing clean, flexible, solar-powered electricity.
A utility-scale solar energy project can help transform local economies, which enhances the quality of life and opportunities in a community.
With millions of dollars in new tax revenue (or directed payments in lieu of taxes) communities can build new school facilities, enhance roads and bridges, and expand emergency services – all without increasing local taxes on property.
Solar delivers affordable clean energy via predictable contracts that do not fluctuate over time. The cost of installing a ground-mounted, utility scale solar project declined by 70% over the last 10 years. These declines, combined with an unlimited and abundant free fuel source, make solar financially competitive with conventional power plants. Utilities and large companies across the country are taking advantage of this to procure a long-term, fixed-price supply of electricity.
