The 35 MW Webberville Solar Farm, located in Webberville, Texas, is a photovoltaic array in Texas. It is made up of 127,728 Trina Solar solar panels, mounted on single axis trackers, covers an area of 380 acres (150 ha), and was built at a cost of $250 million. It is expected to generate 61 GWh in the first year of operation, and 1.4 billion kWh over its 25 year life. Ribbon cutting by Austin's mayor, Lee Leffingwell, was held January 6, 2012, while operation began on December 20, 2011. The project was constructed by RES Americas, who will operate the plant for five years. SunEdison in 2012 sold the plant to MetLife and Longsol Holdings, but will operate the plant for 20 years upon the expiration of the responsibilities of RES Americas.

While most cites list it as a 30 MW plant - its nominal AC capacity, the NREL database lists it as 34 MWP(DC).

Austin Energy, which is purchasing the power generated under a 25 year PPA, has a goal of generating 35% of power consumed from renewable resources by 2020.
