Sand Fork Solar project in Texas


In June 2019, ENGIE entered into a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with Target Corporation for 89 MW of capacity from the Sand Fork Solar Project. This Texas solar project came online in Q1 2021. In addition to providing clean, renewable energy, the project will have a positive economic impact in the local area, namely through local construction jobs and purchases of local goods and services.
