Second Solar Farm Online



By Bill O'Neil

San Antonio's solar power industry is growing--with the Alamo 2 solar farm now online. 

Alamo 2 is phase two of a seven part project--a phase that is focused on Northeast San Antonio and Converse.  

"The site is generating power for approximately 700 to 800 homes" said Sara Kruger with OCI Solar Power. She told 550 KTSA News the completed project will power about 10% of San Antonio's homes--thanks to a $1 billion construction investment.  

"We're building out this project through 2016--and by the end of 2016, we'll have added more than 800 jobs" Kruger said.  

Meanwhile, a newly issued report shows Texas created the second-most clean energy jobs among the states last year--trailing only California.
