US independent power producer (IPP) Advanced Power has begun complete commercial procedure at a 140MW direct present (dc) solar farm in Texas.

The Cutlass solar farm, in the Greater Houston area, very first provided power into the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) system in July 2022.

Additional projects in the company's ERCOT pipeline include the 232MW (dc) Oriana solar project with the choice to add battery storage.

" Cutlass Solar exhibits Advanced Power's continuing growth as a worldwide programmer, manager, and also owner of modern-day power infrastructure.

" We are committed to bringing reliable power to expanding locations that need it, such as Greater Houston," claimed Collin Brown, Advanced Power's vice president of development based in Houston.

He added: "We are equally happy to be contributing to the community with tax obligation revenues to support the county and also neighborhood schools."
