The commission signed off on the need for the $600 million Houston Import Project and a route adjusted slightly to address concerns in communities through which it will run.
Texas accounted for more than one-third of the new wind and natural gas-fired power added to the nation’s electric grid this year through September.
Since May, the grid has added nearly 3,000 megawatts of power capacity — about two-thirds from new wind farms.
The Roserock solar farm will provide power to the city of Austin and surrounding areas through a 20-year power purchase agreement with the municipally owned Austin Energy.
Cheryl Mele, deputy general manager and COO of energy for the city of Austin, will take over the post in mid-January.

At 12:38 a.m. Thursday, the grid that manages nearly 90 percent of Texas’ electricity load hit 12,237.6 megawatts of wind generation — nearly 37 percent of the grid’s load at the time — besting the previous record 11,467 megawatts from wind set on Sept. 13, according to the Electricity Reliability Council of Texas that manages the grid. A megawatt powers about 500 typical Texas residences during periods of normal demand.
