TotalEnergies Will Supply LyondellBasell Through Two Long-Term Solar CPPAs

After a first renewable Corporate Power Purchase Agreement (CPPA) signed at the end of 2022, TotalEnergies has signed a second contract with LyondellBasell, a global leader in the chemical industry, to supply a combined 275 MWac (358 MW) of green electricity sourced from its utility-scale Cottonwood Bayou and Brazoria Solar farms in Texas:

  • Through the newly signed 15-year CPPA, LyondellBasell will offtake 125 MWac (163 MW) from TotalEnergies’ Brazoria Solar farm, located southwest of Houston, with a capacity of 325 MW and a commercial start-up planned for end of 2025.
  • Through the 12-year CPPA signed in 2022, LyondellBasell will offtake 150 MWac (195 MW) from TotalEnergies’ Cottonwood Bayou Solar plant, a project located south of Houston, with a capacity of 455 MW and a commercial start-up planned for end of 2024.

The two CPPAs are indexed on merchant prices through an upside-sharing mechanism, under which the companies share any potential upside arising from increased market price over the contract term. They follow other CPPAs TotalEnergies signed with Amazon and Saint-Gobain in the U.S., demonstrating its ability to provide competitive renewable electricity to support these industry leaders’ decarbonization goals.

“TotalEnergies is proud to support LyondellBasell on its climate goals. The signing of these new upside sharing CPPAs in the United States is consistent with our strategy to take merchant exposure and will contribute to the objective of profitable growth for our Integrated Power business”, said Vincent Stoquart, Senior Vice President, Renewables at TotalEnergies.
