BREWSTER COUNTY - A solar park is on its way to Brewster County.

It'll be the first ever in the State of Texas.

Solaire Direct announced their plans for the project at Monday's commissioner meeting.

The solar park would have two 50 megawatt solar farms and would provide enough electricity for 25,000 homes.

The park would be located about 14 miles east of Alpine on 745 acres of land.

Solaire Direct is hoping that the project will be built and operating by the end of 2016.
