RES Distributed is pleased to announce an agreement with Pedernales Electric Cooperative (PEC) to develop, construct and manage a 15MW distributed portfolio of solar PV projects in the Texas Hill Country.
The Pedernales Electric Community Solar Project will consist of fifteen sites across PEC's service territory with each site hosting up to 998kW solar array. Construction of the facilities will begin later this year and is scheduled to be completed in 2017.
"RES Distributed is pleased to work alongside PEC to support member interest in distributed generation and embrace reliable and sustainable energy," said Tom Duckett, President, RES Distributed. "This project demonstrates an innovative, customer-sited energy solution that RES Distributed will deliver using our 20 years of development, construction and energy management experience."
"PEC is excited to partner with RES for its community solar program," said Ingmar Sterzing, PEC's vice president of Power Supply and Energy Services. "Once completed, these installations will allow all interested members to directly participate in a solar program that will provide the Cooperative with a cost-effective rate for all its member-owners,"
PEC will purchase output from the multi-site facility once it is brought online in 2017 under a long-term power purchase agreement signed with RES Distributed.
