110-MW OCI Alamo 6 solar project in Texas to go commercial by Dec. 31

Alamo 6 Solar Holdings LLC applied Oct. 17 at the Public Utility Commission of Texas for approval of the purchase of 100% of the membership interests in OCI Solar San Antonio 6 LLC and therefore indirectly project subsidiary OCI Alamo 6 LLC.

OCI Alamo 6 is developing a 110.2-MW project in Pecos County, Texas, that is due for commercial operation by Dec. 31 of this year. The project will interconnect with the LCRA Transmission Services system in the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) region.

Alamo 6 Solar Holdings asked the commission for approval of this purchase at the commission’s Dec. 16 meeting, so that the deal can close by the end of this year.

OCI Solar Power LLC currently owns 100% of the membership interests in OCI Solar San Antonio 6. It will retain no interest in that company or this solar project as a result of this sale deal.

The buyer, Alamo 6 Solar Holdings, is a subsidiary of BHE Solar LLC, which is part of BHE Renewables LLC, which is a unit of Berkshire Hathaway Energy.
