Meta Signs PPA For 240 MW of Texas Solar
Meta announced the signing of a power purchase agreement (PPA) to procure renewable energy from True North, a 240 MW solar farm expected to reach operations by early 2025 in Falls County, Texas.
The PPA was signed with AVANGRID, a sustainable energy company and part of the Iberdrola Group. The solar farm is AVANGRID’s first solar facility in the state.
“We’re excited to expand our partnership with AVANGRID to help bring new solar energy to support our local operations in Texas,” said Urvi Parekh, head of renewable energy at Meta in a statement. “True North will support our commitment to 100% renewable energy and represents additional investment and jobs for the region.”
Since 2020, Meta’s renewable energy has supported 100% of its global operations. The True North project will upgrade Meta’s upcoming data center in neighboring Temple, which is their second in Texas.
