ACCIONA Energía has started operations at Red-Tailed Hawk photovoltaic plant, located near Houston in Wharton County, Texas. With a capacity of 458MWp, it is the company’s largest solar complex built to date.

Red-Tailed Hawk joins ACCIONA Energía’s existing portfolio of renewable energy projects in North America, where it now has 2.7GW installed, and reinforces its position as a key player in the country’s energy transition. In addition, the company is building a 280MW wind farm in Forty Mile County, Alberta (Canada) and Union Solar, a 325MWp photovoltaic plant in Ohio (United States).

The new facility features solar panels affixed to solar trackers that follow the sun's path, maximizing sunlight exposure and production. It will generate 742GWh of clean electricity per year, equivalent to the consumption of around 66,500 Texas households, and avoid the emission of approximately 430,000 tons of CO2 annually.

The project falls under ACCIONA Energía’s Social Impact Management program, which reallocates a portion of its annual revenue to support local community initiatives in education, wellness, and environmental stewardship.

Beyond its contribution to decarbonization, Red-Tailed Hawk has generated employment opportunities, creating approximately 400 jobs during the peak construction phase, and sustaining up to 15 permanent positions.
