About the project
Located in Fort Bend County, Texas, the approximately 400MWAC Old 300 Solar Center will have the capability to power 74,600 homes annually; helping meet the energy needs of Texans during peak demand periods. Ørsted, a leading developer of wind and solar projects across the United States, will construct, own and operate the Old 300 Solar Center.
The project is a long-term asset for Ørsted and the Fort Bend County community. By empowering local landowners who are leasing their land for this project, the development of Old 300 Solar creates a dependable income source for family ranches. Furthermore, project construction will create hundreds of local jobs and the long-term operation of Old 300 Solar will generate millions in property tax revenue for Fort Bend County and the Needville Independent School District.
