National Grid Renewables announced the start of commercial operation at its Copperhead Solar and Storage Project located in Falls County, Texas, further expanding the company’s clean energy economic benefits across the Lonestar State.

Located in the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) market, Copperhead is a 150-MW solar and 100-MWh storage project that celebrated its groundbreaking in the fall of 2022. Copperhead is anticipated to contribute $25 million in direct economic impact, including $12 million in new tax revenue over the first 25 years of operation. Additionally, and unique to National Grid Renewables, the project will also contribute $600,000 through the Copperhead Community Fund to three volunteer fire departments and a youth athletic organization in Falls County, Texas.

“We continue to grow our renewable energy portfolio within the state of Texas and persist in our dedication to contributing positively to the economic well-being of the communities in which we operate,” said Blake Nixon, president of National Grid Renewables. “Copperhead signifies this commitment, and we look forward to continuing to be good neighbors and partners with the Lonestar state and its residents.”
