Apex Clean Energy of Charlottesville, Virginia, is constructing Angelo Solar, a 195 MW facility that is expected to generate enough homegrown Texas energy to power up to 50,300 homes per year. Situated in rural Tom Green County, on remote private land with access to existing transmission lines, the location is highly suitable for a solar energy project.

A Clean Economic Opportunity for Tom Green County

Angelo Solar offers a new source of economic development, with long-term local tax revenue for schools, government services, and public infrastructure. The power from Angelo Solar will be delivered onto the Texas electrical grid, helping diversify the state’s energy portfolio.

Solar power is one of the most cost-effective sources of electricity available today, and its ability to generate power at peak times helps reduce electricity costs for all consumers.

In addition to creating direct and indirect jobs during construction and operations, Angelo Solar offers a new opportunity in Tom Green County for companies seeking to grow their business in areas with access to renewable power.
