Solar projects and locations

RWE Clean Energy aims for the rapid expansion of renewable energies. As a complement to onshore and offshore wind energy, photovoltaics and storage systems are essential for the success of the energy transition. This is why, RWE plans to accelerate the development of solar and storage projects in America, Europe and Australia.

Hull & Vauxhall

The large-scale photovoltaic plants Hull (Prairie Sunlight II, 25 MW) and Vauxhall (Prairie Sunlight III, 22 MW) are located in Southern Alberta (Canada) and started commercial operation in July and August 2020.

Together the two solar parks produce enough green electricity to supply the equivalent of about 12,500 Canadian homes.


Marbletown Community Solar

Marbletown, NY

The Marbletown community solar project is designed, built, and managed by RWE Clean Energy on land that was once a farm. The site is quietly producing clean, green energy for Central Hudson Gas and Electric customers. This is the first community solar project operated by RWE Clean Energy in the Central Hudson utility territory and businesses and residents in the nearby communities can save on their electricity costs while supporting local solar power. Based upon the EPA equivalencies calculator, this facility can meet the electricity needs of approximately 860 average homes.

Tamworth and Tanager

At the end of 2019, RWE commissioned two solar farms, Tamworth and Tanager in North Carolina, with a total capacity of around 10 MW. Together the solar plants will generate enough green electricity to supply the equivalent of over 2,000 US homes. Both projects further benefit from 15-year power purchase agreements with Duke Energy.


Tech Park Solar

Tech Park Solar (TPS) is our first solar project built in North America, located in Pima County, Arizona, and started generating power in December 2012. TPS is a 5 MW (AC) solar generation facility developed in collaboration with the Campus Research Corporation at the University of Arizona. It is a collaborative hub for researchers and the industry to promote and develop renewable energy. TPS provided over 150 construction jobs and will contribute about $170,000 per year in property tax revenues to Pima County.


Valencia Solar

Valencia Solar, 11 MW (AC) is RWE’s largest solar generation facility in Pima County, Arizona, and came online in June 2013. The facility stands out for being the first North American project for which we performed all engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services. Construction coordinated the activities of 10 main suppliers of civil and electrical work including the provision and installation of inverters/transformers, trackers, switchgear and modules, cable laying and combiner box connection set-up. E.ON Climate and Renewables as RWE Clean Energys predecessor managed Valencia’s design, construction and operation to maximize local input in close cooperation with local government, civic organizations and the community.


West of the Pecos

West of the Pecos (WOTP) is a 100 megawatt (MWac) solar plant located in Reeves County, Texas, approximately 75 miles southwest of Midland-Odessa. Pecos is the county capital and seat of the Reeves County Administration in the state of Texas in the United States. The project utilizes nearly 350,000 solar modules on a surface of 550 football pitches and covers more than 700 acres within the county leased from Texas Pacific Land Trust and Texas General Land Office. WOTP is RWE’s first solar project in Texas and is currently the company’s largest solar facility in the U.S.
