Texas' MMEX Resources Makes Solar Moves

Texas-based MMEX Resources Corp., which focuses on oil, gas, refining and electric power projects in Texas and Latin America., has announced its new membership in the Texas Solar Power Association (TSPA).

“MMEX Resources is committed to developing a solar power plan to provide the electric power to our planned 10,000 barrel-per-day crude distillation unit and its full-scale crude oil refinery in Pecos County near Fort Stockton, Texas,” says Jack W. Hanks, president and CEO of MMEX Resources Corp.

“TSPA’s mission and vision closely aligns with our project development,” Hanks continues, “and we look forward to connecting with other like-minded association members committed to seeking alternative sources of energy to power their businesses and surrounding communities.”

In July of this year, MMEX announced the formation of MMEX Solar Resources LLC and filed a trademark to develop a solar project to potentially supply renewable energy to its refinery projects.

“Texas has always been an energy leader, and solar power is now a valuable addition to our energy portfolio,“ comments Charlie Hemmeline, executive director of TSPA. “We are excited to work with MMEX Resources as they expand into solar power and join a growing roster of companies bringing cost-competitive solar to market.”
