A few days ago, to commemorate the construction commencement of its Copperhead Solar & Storage Project, 150 megawatt (MW) solar and 100 MWh megawatt hour (MWh) storage project in Falls County, Texas, National Grid Renewables gathered with its fellow project partners and landowners. During the groundbreaking event, they also announced a 140 megawatt (MW) Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with The Hershey Company for Copperhead. This is the second PPA between The Hershey Company and National Grid Renewables after The Hershey Company’s Noble solar PPA was announced in 2021.
