Eco-Energy | November 02, 2021
Eco-Energy LLC, an energy solutions and midstream company with a long history in renewable energy, announced the completion of the first two fuel terminals in the United States to achieve net-zero emissions for on-site operations, in Augusta and Cartersville, Georgia. The emission reductions were realized through the installation of solar arrays by Eco-Energy’s newly created Solar Division.
The Solar Division is a critical component of Eco-Energy’s Carbon Solutions platform, and is actively working on solar projects to realize emission reductions in its own supply chain and in the operations of the customers it serves. Eco’s Carbon Solutions platform is also involved in project development and trading in the voluntary and regulated carbon markets.
“As a leading integrated energy solutions company with more than 25 years of experience in the renewable space, Eco-Energy is uniquely positioned to offer renewable energy and low-carbon solutions to its upstream and downstream customers,” said Brian Simpson, Executive Vice President. “We view the current energy transition as an opportunity to deploy innovative solutions that make sense environmentally and financially.”
As companies face increased environmental scrutiny and ESG imperatives, solar provides an opportunity to reduce emission on an operational level. Together, the projects will offset 8,500 metric tons of CO2 emissions over their 25 year lifespan.
“No other fuel terminal in the United States had yet to achieve net zero status because doing so is a unique engineering challenge. With our new solar division at Eco-Energy, we were able to meet the challenge and are now able to help our customers do the same.”

EDP Renewables, a global leader within the renewable energy sector and the world’s fourth-largest renewable energy producer, through its subsidiary EDP Renewables North America LLC, has started commercial operation of the 209 MW “Reloj del Sol” wind farm. The wind farm has begun producing power in Zapata County, Texas.
“Reloj del Sol” will help strengthen Texas’s grid and is estimated to supply approximately $36 million in direct payments to local governments and $100 million in payments to landowners throughout the life of the project. Moreover, the commissioning of this project supported 101 full-time equivalent jobs during construction and created 10 permanent jobs, dedicated to operating and maintaining the wind park. Reloj del Sol also will save quite 372 million gallons of water annually that might otherwise be used for cooling traditional power plants.
This project is the latest successful project in EDPR’s growing energy portfolio in Texas, joining the company’s four operating wind farms in the state. Collectively, EDPR’s Texas portfolio now totals 909 MW in operating renewable energy capacity – producing enough energy to power the equivalent of approximately 236,000 average Texas homes annually.
EDPR NA is committed to continuing to grow Texas’s leadership in renewable energy and increasing the already $1.5 billion it has invested in the state. it is also currently constructing the 200-MW Wildcat Creek wind farm, which is located in Cooke County, approximately 50 miles north of Dallas-Fort Worth.
