Duke Energy Renewables a subsidiary of Duke Energy is expanding its solar energy portfolio by acquiring the 200-megawatt (MWac) / 266 megawatt peak Rambler solar project from Recurrent Energy, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Canadian Solar Inc. The project will be located in Tom Green County, Texas and is expected to achieve commercial operation in mid-2020. The energy generated from the Rambler solar project will be sold to a customer under a 15-year agreement. The 200-MWac project will utilize more than 733,000 of Canadian Solar's high efficiency bifacial BiKu modules across approximately 1,700 acres west of San Angelo, Texas. Rambler will power the equivalent of 40,000 homes, and Duke Energy Renewables will provide long-term operations and maintenance services to the project.

The project is expected to employ 400 workers at peak construction. Along with indirect economic benefits that accompany solar project development such as increased local spending in the service and construction industries Rambler will also directly provide several million dollars to Tom Green County and to the local school district over the 40-year life of the project.

Mr Rob Caldwell, president of Duke Energy Renewables said that “We’re pleased to continue our expansion of solar energy resources in Texas, which is seeing increasing demand for power. In addition to generating clean energy, this project will also bring significant economic benefits to the state.”
