By Editors of Power Engineering

A 150-MW solar facility developed near Georgetown, Texas will begin operations a year later than expected, Georgetown Mayor Dale Ross said.

The announcement came during a Georgetown city council meeting to authorize NRG Energy to take over the project, reported the Community Impact.

City officials now expect to begin receiving solar energy starting July 1, 2018. Original estimates were for the site to begin operations in early 2017.

The facility’s original developer, SunEdison, filed for bankruptcy earlier this year, and NRG Energy purchased the Georgetown facility.

The city of Georgetown has an agreement to purchase power from the facility through 2041. Currently, Georgetown purchases energy from the Spinning Spur 3 wind facility through an agreement lasting through 2035.
