National Grid Renewables brings online 275MW Texas PV plant with 125MWh battery storage system

By Will Norman

PV plant developer National Grid Renewables has commenced operations at its Noble solar-plus-storage project in Denton County, Texas.

The installation consists of a 275MW solar PV farm and 125MWh energy storage system.

The Noble project will utilise series 6 First Solar thin-film modules as part of the ongoing relationship between the manufacturer and National Grid Renewables, which saw a 2GW supply deal signed earlier this year for modules to be delivered in 2024-25.

Located in the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) region, the project already has three power purchase agreements (PPAs) in place. The Home Depot and NRG Energy have each signed 100MW PPAs for Noble, and The Hershey Company has accounted for a further 50MW of capacity.
