Installed capacity of 180 megawatts (MW)
Azalea Springs Solar Park is a proposed 180 MW utility-scale solar park located in the northwest corner of Angelina County, Texas, about 10 miles northwest of Lufkin and 17 miles southwest of Nacogdoches. The solar park would be sited on land primarily used as a timber site and would provide an economic benefit to the surrounding community. Azalea Springs Solar Park would commence construction in 2023, which would enable full operations to be achieved in 2025.
Azalea Springs Solar Park yields significantly in the form of payments to landowners, local spending, and annual community investment. Azalea Springs Solar Park is also compatible with other land uses and provides a stable form of income to local landowners.
