Blue Wing (Duke Energy)
Blue Wing is San Antonio’s first solar farm and the largest solar array in the state of Texas. Located in southeast San Antonio on 113 acres near the intersection of IH-37 and U.S. 181, the 14.4-megawatt installation utilizes 214,500 solar photovoltaic modules or panels to produce clean, emission-free energy for CPS Energy customers.

The Blue Wing Solar Project is capable of producing more than 26,570 megawatt-hours of electricity per year -- enough to power 1,800 households. The renewable energy generated by the farm is equivalent to taking 3,800 cars off the road.
“Blue Wing further solidifies our commitment to acquire affordable, renewable energy resources, while contributing to our community’s economic development,” said Doyle Beneby, president and CEO of CPS Energy. “We are currently number one nationally in wind energy capacity among public utilities, and this project launches our venture into solar power, which will be pursued with equal effort.”
CPS Energy purchases all of the electric generation produced at the facility from Duke Energy Generation Services (DEGS) through a 30-year power purchase agreement (PPA).
