Claimed to be the largest solar plant in Texas and one of the largest dual-axis solar projects in the world, the Alamo 6 is being built as part of a 400MW Alamo project agreement with CPS Energy signed in 2012.

The Alamo project involves seven utility-scale photovoltaic (PV) facilities, of which three are under construction and four are already operational, and is expected to create more than 800 jobs in the San Antonio area.

Developed, owned and operated by OCI Solar, the facility will feature locally built products from the company’s affiliates, including a dual-axis tracker system from Sun Action Trackers and solar modules from Mission Solar Energy.

KACO New Energy will be responsible for the supply of inverters while Mortenson Construction will construct the project.

OCI Solar Power president and CEO SH Yoon said: "The Alamo 6 project will be built using components that are made exclusively in San Antonio."

Planned to be completed during the fourth quarter of 2016, the Alamo 6 project is expected to provide about 250 jobs during construction phase.
