Solar Developer Hires Former NRG Execs, Announces Utility-Scale Projects In Texas

August 02,2018

In announcing a name change and launch of a utility scale solar division, Sunfinity Renewable Energy, LLC (f/k/a Sunfinity Solar, LLC) reported early-stage development of the Flatland Solar Farm in Scurry County, Texas. The project is located on a 950-acre secured site and has capacity ranging from 140-180 megawatts (MW), with expansion possible during later phases.

"If our Flatland solar project was online today, it would be among the five largest operating solar farms in Texas," said John Billingsley, Sunfinity Chairman and CEO

The Flatland Solar Farm is expected to break ground in 2019 and is expected to require approximately 12-14 months to complete.

A second West Texas project is in negotiations with a solar capacity of 120 MW. A third utility-scale solar project, located in Colorado, is currently under negotiations and will be announced at a future date, the company said

Sunfinity's utility scale division's management team will be headed by W. Richard Grosdidier, formerly Director of Development and Head of U.S. Solar Power for European-based Innogy Renewables, where he was responsible for starting and building the company's U.S. utility scale solar business. Prior to this post, he ran the utility scale renewable business at NRG Renew (formerly NRG Solar). As a founding member of NRG Solar, Grosdidier helped build the company from launch into a utility scale solar portfolio of 1.8 gigawatts (GW) through acquisition and green-field development in a four-year period. Grosdidier also spent five years at NextEra Energy in senior finance positions.

Solar industry veteran Dallas Tharpe also has joined the utility scale solar team as Senior Vice President of Development Engineering; he was a founding member of the NRG Solar start-up team, leading their development engineering and joins Sunfinity from the solar independent engineer, Denver-based Luminate.
