“As the demand for energy grows, so does the need to seek diverse resources to meet the changing needs of our customers,” said Abigail Weaver, Entergy Texas director of resource planning and market operations.

“Customers from all sectors are interested in access to sustainable sources of energy, and Entergy Texas is pleased to help meet our customers’ sustainability goals by investing in a diverse fuel supply.”  
Wind and solar generation resources provide a large amount of clean power over the course of the year with no added fuel costs, helping to provide lower cost energy. Additionally, the RFP allows bidders to offer battery storage options to further enhance the wind and solar resources’ ability to meet customer needs.  

Our commitment to providing reliable, affordable and sustainable energy is evidenced in prior solicitations. From 2019 to just prior to this latest RFP, Entergy Texas has issued two RFPs totaling 600 MW. 

“The request for 2,000 MW of renewable resources also marks a major milestone for Entergy Texas, as this is the largest solicitation of renewable resources in company history,” said Eliecer Viamontes, Entergy Texas president and CEO.

“Adding renewable energy to diversify our mix of power generation sources is part of our strategy for keeping rates low for existing customers and remaining more competitive for businesses looking to expand or locate their next operation in Texas.”
