NEW ORLEANS — Texas will get more than $2 billion from its largest solar program for energy production and distribution, which was announced Thursday by Gov.
The solar project, which will cost $6.6 million per megawatt hour, is expected to generate about $6 billion for Texas.
The money will go to the state of Texas’ Department of Public Safety and Public Safety & Security, the Department of Energy, the Texas Railroad Commission and the Department in charge of energy.
The project is part of the Texas Department of Transportation’s Energy Storage and Storage Technology program, which aims to use renewable energy sources to provide energy to utilities.
The state of the program is still being worked out.
