LyondellBasell Industries signed two 15-year renewable electricity power purchase agreements (PPA) with Buckeye Partners to receive 165 MW of power from Buckeye's solar farms in northern Texas, according to a press release on July 28.

Buckeye's Crown and Sol solar farms are currently under construction in Falls County, Texas, expected to commence commercial operations in third quarter 2023. The combined projects are anticipated to produce 400,000 MWh of clean power for LyondellBasell annually.

The partnership is part of LyondellBasell's goal to obtain at least half of its current electricity consumption from renewable sources by 2030, which would be approximately 5 million MWh a year., as well as its goal to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.
