Solar Plus Development, an arm of Plus Renewable Technologies, and Avondale Solar has partnered with J-Power USA Development (J-Power USA) to jointly develop a 400 MW solar photovoltaic (PV) project in Refugio County, Texas.

Avondale Solar is a privately-held investment holding company created for the purpose of investing in utility-scale solar projects across the de-regulated electricity markets in the US. While, Plus Renewable Technologies is the owner and operator of renewable assets in China, Taiwan and the US and continues to evaluate and develop new projects in the US, UK, Italy and other Asian countries.

To develop this 400 MW solar project called Charger Solar, these companies have formed an equally owned joint venture (JV) company, AP Solar Holdings, LLC.

Commenting on the development, Trevor Nash, CEO of AP Solar Holdings, said that “we are very pleased to be working with J-Power USA on the development of Charger Solar, in addition to the previously announced Red-Tailed Hawk Solar, and, based on the market dynamics and data that we are seeing, Charger Solar will be optimally located to deliver power to both the South and Houston Zones of ERCOT.”

This project is expected to break the ground in H2 of 2021 and be operational by the summer of 2023. Moreover, on the back of its close proximity to the Houston metro area, the project is expected to experience minimal curtailment and basis risk to the premium Houston Zone of ERCOT.

“We strive to minimize our carbon footprint by finding innovative clean energy solutions,” said Mark Condon, President and CEO of J-Power USA.

Condon also added that “this joint venture represents an expansion of our relationship with AP Solar which follows our partnership to develop Red-Tail Hawk, a 350 MWac solar project located in Wharton County, TX.”
