Alamo Cement Company Launches solar power system in Texas Alamo Cement has announced the completion of their new solar power system in San Antonio, Texas, advancing the company’s commitment to reduce carbon emissions and align itself with the cement industry’s goal of reaching carbon neutrality.

The company has made a significant investment in this renewable power project, which has the capacity to generate up to 17,800 megawatt-hours (MWh) per year. The 45-acre solar panel field is estimated to generate up to 15% of the plant’s yearly power consumption while reducing emissions and electricity costs. Full use of this renewable energy system within the group in the USA is estimated to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 8,000 tons per year.

Installing the largest customer-owned solar power system contributes to reduce the local demand for energy, reducing use by 7.5 megawatts by the end of 2023. Alamo took this important step to improve its sustainability performance and continues with its present and long-term plans to reduce overall greenhouse gas emissions.
