Entergy Texas is calling for 2,000 MW of solar and wind generating resources through a recently issued request for proposals (RFP).

The RFP represents a substantial increase from prior solicitations. Since 2019, Entergy Texas has issued two RFPs totaling 600 MW. The latest RFP also allows bidders to offer battery storage options to further balance the renewable additions.

Entergy was recently approved to build the Orange County Advanced Power Station, a 1,215 MW combined cycle plant that will be located near Bridge City, Texas.

Located in one of the largest industrial regions in the country, the plant would have the initial capability to use up to 30% hydrogen by volume along with natural gas to generate power.

Entergy Texas is a unit of New Orleans-based Entergy Corp., which owns and operates about 30,000 MW of electric generating capacity and delivers it to customers in Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi.
