Enel North America has signed a PPA with BXP for a 21 MW portion of the Estonian solar + storage project under construction in Delta County, Texas.
"Efforts to advance meaningful decarbonization at BXP have been centered on energy efficiency, electrification, and renewable energy procurement," said Doug Linde, President of BXP. "By contracting for renewable power that is additional, we are making a positive impact by supporting the growth of renewable energy generation and broader transition to a clean energy future.”
The 202 MW Estonian project, expected to be introduced in late 2024, will be combined with a 104 MW battery energy storage system to generate around 499 GWh of clean electricity each year, equivalent to powering 46,000 U.S. households. The hybrid project is anticipated to generate over $23 million in new local tax revenue for schools and public services over its life.
Edison Energy was the renewable energy advisor of BXP for the transaction.
Enel manages 10,000 annual utility bills for BXP across 939 active accounts and has enabled over $6 million in demand response revenue since 2011. The company also holds 3.3 GW of installed wind and solar capacity and 607 MW / 911 MWh of installed battery storage capacity supporting the ERCOT grid in Texas.
Enel not only has 1.8 GW of solar and 736 MW/ 1,103 MWh of utility-scale storage capacity under construction in Texas but also manages around 200 MW of demand response capacity, offers retail electricity supply, and has more than 12,400 electric vehicle charging stations installed in the state.
