Irving company pivots to green energy

Vistra, an energy powerhouse based in Irving, announced plans to achieve net-zero carbon dioxide emissions by 2050. A key part of that plan is a capital investment of $1.15 billion by 2022 on solar and storage projects in California and Texas.

The company also plans to close coal-fired energy plants in Illinois and Ohio by 2027. “Vistra’s commitment to our transformation to a low-to-nocarbon future is unequivocal and offers unique opportunities for growth and innovation,”

President and CEO Curt Morgan said in a press release. Vistra solar projects opening within the next two years in Texas are in Andrews, Brightside, Emerald Grove, Forest Grove, and Oak Hill. A solar project and energy storage project is planned at Upton 2 near Emerald Grove.
