Standard Solar Expands Into Texas, Acquires 9.9-Megawatt Commercial Solar Project from EDF Renewables North America

EDF Renewables’ Distribution-Scale Power team developed the project and will continue to perform the role of EPC contractor throughout the construction phase. Standard Solar will be the long-term owner and operator. The Bluebonnet project is slated for completion in Q2-2024, with construction efforts underway.

“This project represents a significant milestone for Standard Solar as we expand our footprint into the Texas renewable energy market,” said Eric Partyka, Director of Business Development, Standard Solar.

“This marks the fourth collaboration between Standard Solar and EDF Renewables in the past 2-3 years, including projects such as Lawsbrook, Knox and Lehigh University. We firmly believe in nurturing enduring partnerships founded on strong customer relationships, as well as with partners like EDF Renewables, who excel in constructing projects we can all take pride in.”

The recently acquired Bluebonnet project features bifacial modules on single-axis trackers, and it is being developed on a greenfield site in McGregor, Texas. The project is expected to yield approximately 25,000 megawatt-hours (MWh) of clean, renewable energy annually, contributing to a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and a more sustainable energy future. The energy produced will substitute a significant portion of Messer’s conventional energy consumption, affirming its commitment to sustainability as a global leader in industrial gases and technology.
