Fotowatio Renewable Ventures Chooses Renewable Energy Systems Americas for Solar Project Completion

Fotowatio Renewable Ventures (FRV), an independent power production company engaged developing, owning and operating solar power plans, declared that it has chosen Renewable Energy Systems Americas (RES Americas), a Colorado headquartered company, to complete the construction of the 30 MW Webberville solar project located outside of Austin, Texas.

FRV has recently closed the financing for the project and has begun construction and wants it to be fully functional by the end of the year. As per the terms of the contract, RES Americas will complete the construction of the project and it will continue to offer operational and maintenance services needed by the power plant for a period of five years.

The construction of the solar power project, which is located over a land owned by Austin Energy, in Travis County and situated around 15 miles east of Austin in Webberville, TX, is currently under progress. The project will install 270 W crystalline PV modules purchased directly from Trina Solar and will be placed over a flat single-axis tracking facility to track the movement of the sun all through the day.

The Webberville Solar project, when completed will generate enough electricity to feed 5,000 houses and will displace around 30,000 tons carbon dioxide emissions every year. The energy generated from the solar project will be sold to Austin Energy under a 25 year power purchase agreement.
