AUSTIN — The Lower Colorado River Authority says it has signed a contract to add 141 megawatts (MW) of solar power to its generation portfolio to serve its wholesale customers beginning in 2021.

Under the contract, announced Thursday, LCRA will purchase renewable energy from a solar plant to be built in Borden County. The solar power will supplement LCRA’s other renewable energy, including 295 MW available from hydroelectric generation at dams along the Highland Lakes and 10 MW from a south Texas solar plant under construction.
