Solar Austin Happy Hour: Exploring the Webberville Power Plant with Pat Sweeney
Wednesday, January 22, 2014 from 5:30 PM to 8:30 PM (CST)
Come out and join us to explore one of Texas's greatest assets in energy production- our 30 MW Webberville solar plant!
Mr. Pat Sweeney, Director of Energy and Market Operations at for Austin Energy, will join us on this momentous happy hour occassion that marks the two year anniversary of operation of the 30MW Webberville PV power plant.
We're excited to find out what Mr. Sweeney has to say about these thought provoking questions from the soalr community:
What have we learned by integrating that facility into the city’s portfolio of power production?
How are near zero marginal cost energy sources best deployed into the ERCOT wholesale market?
What operational highs and lows have occurred?
Join us to hear all about how Webberville, which remains the single largest PV power facility in TX (380 acres, over 127K panels), is serving Austin and what lessons are being applied to recent and future utility scale solar RFPs from the city.
State Parking Garages can be found next to, behind and across from Scholz Garten. San Jacinto Blvd., 15th, 16th, 17th, 18th, and Trinity have parking garage entrances.
