Adapture Renewables Announces Solar Energy Offtake Contract with A Fortune 50 Company

Adapture Renewables, Inc., a utility-scale solar and energy storage project developer, owner and operator, announced today the execution of an energy off-take agreement with a confidential Fortune 50 company for a 67 MWp utility-scale solar facility in Hunt County, Texas. The Adapture Renewables project, slated to begin commercial operations later in 2024, will support the company's goal to power its operations with renewable energy as part of its commitment to net zero targets.

Growth of data centers, manufacturing, and electric vehicle charging is driving energy demand from commercial and industrial users in the U.S., especially across the rich economy of Texas. Adapture Renewables' Dallas-area project will provide this Fortune 50 business with the equivalent of 120 GWh of clean electricity each year, enough to power 12,500 homes, through a Virtual Power Purchase Agreement (VPPA). The project will also provide over one hundred and fifty local jobs during the construction of the project for an estimated net positive economic impact of over $77 million to the local community, calculated according to a 2021 National Renewable Energy Lab model.

Much of the development for the project was carried out during the COVID pandemic and the global energy crisis caused by Russia's invasion of Ukraine, a challenging and critical time for energy deployment.

"We're excited to announce this latest VPPA agreement with a global business leader," says Jesse Tippett, Vice President of Origination for Adapture Renewables. "This partnership adds to our growing portfolio of dependable long-term agreements with corporate energy buyers, datacenter operators, e-fuels companies, utilities, and electric cooperatives to procure cost-effective clean energy products. We are proud to help support these companies in their goals and create a cleaner and more reliable grid with cost-efficient, locally-generated solar energy."

Nathan Durfee, Adapture Renewables' lead developer shared, "Working with the Hunt County community on this solar farm project has been an inspiring experience. The dedication of local landowners and the proactive approach of the county have been key drivers in our progress. This project not only advances our renewable energy goals but also underscores the strength of community partnerships and shared responsibility in achieving sustainable development."

In December 2023, Adapture Renewables also signed three agreements with a different Fortune 50 firm to procure 330 MW of renewable energy from solar projects under development in Illinois and Arkansas.
