Entire Texas Town Could be Solar Powered – Care2 Healthy & Green Living

Posted by Trish Riley, July 5, 2010

Pflugerville, Texas is a small city of about 50,000 people, near Austin. Officials there are currently negotiating with RRE Austin Solar, and Travis County to develop a solar powerplant that could generate enough power for every house in the city. The plant will likely be located on a 600 acre farm about fifteen miles away. It will house about $750,000 worth of solar panels.

At the moment, Austin Solar (the company constructing the farm) is still waiting to hear about tax incentives they need to be able to go ahead with building the facility. Without tax breaks, they say they can’t afford to do the work.
