Leeward secures 400 MW PPAs from Microsoft

Boosting renewable energy portfolio


Leeward Renewable Energy, a US renewable energy developer and operator, has inked power purchase agreements (PPAs) with Microsoft Corp for two 200 MW solar projects in Texas. The tech giant obtained power from the Cradle Solar project in Brazoria County and the Morrow Lake Solar project in Frio County under the PPAs.

According to the company, Morrow Lake Solar development began in 2017 with Red River, a SunChase Power and Eolian joint venture. The Morrow Lake Solar plant’s ongoing construction is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2024. It is anticipated that Cradle Solar’s construction will begin in the second quarter of 2024 and be completed by the fourth quarter of the same year.

First Solar Inc.’s thin-film modules will power the two 200 MW solar farms. In order to secure batches of modules for its portfolio, Leeward has placed orders with First Solar totaling gigawatts in recent years.
