New Vistra Solar Plant In Texas, Supporting Retail Businesses, Achieves Commercial Operation

June 04,2018



Vistra Energy announced that its 180 MW Upton 2 Solar Power Plant in West Texas has achieved commercial operations.

The company's power generating subsidiary, Luminant, is the plant's owner and serves as its qualified scheduling entity with the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT).

Vistra announced the purchase of Upton 2 in May 2017 while the project was under development.

"When we announced the project a year ago, we did so knowing that Upton 2 was the perfect fit for Vistra's integrated business model," said Curt Morgan, the company's president and chief executive officer. "Through this project, we're enabling our Texas retail brand, TXU Energy, to enhance its retail solar offerings, and we're diversifying Luminant's generation fleet, as well. This project makes strategic sense for us as a business, and we're excited that it is officially powering Texas in time for the 2018 summer."

Vistra said the plant also provides a platform for battery storage development and implementation.
