OCI Solar Power has just put online Phase 1 of it’s big 400 MW solar farm being built in San Antonio, Texas. The output from Phase 1 of the Alamo I solar farm is 40 megawatts, or enough to power about 6,600 homes. Estimates from CPS Energy, the company buying the electricity under a leasing agreement, show that the solar power will reduce carbon dioxide emissions by approximately 57,000 tons.

At 167,000 panels covering 450 acres, Phase 1 of the Alamo project is now the biggest photovoltaic solar farm in Texas, but its really only about 10% of the entire project. “Alamo I is an interesting milestone because it’s now the largest solar farm in Texas, but it’s still a small part of what is to come,” OCI Solar Power President and CEO Tony Dorazio said. “Alamo I is only step one to Texas’ rise as a big player in solar.”

The next phase of the project, Alamo II, is expected to be completed in early 2014. Alamo II will bring another 4.4 megawatts on line to San Antonio.

    demanded Dan Evans and his party to give up Ben Wade, in exchange for their
    own freedom. Our tale starts out with the protagonist, who is also
    the narrator of and commentary of the story in a seemingly dead end life that is quickly going
    nowhere. There are certain internet webpages that announces having watch movies online that you can watch followed after you appear at the web you are needed
    to complete a survey or download an meddling advertisement software
    to your computer.
