Green Power EMC project to add solar power capacity in Georgia

Sponsored by

Green Power EMC, renewable energy supplier for 38 Georgia electric membership corporations, reached an agreement to purchase the full output of a new 20 MW solar project planned for construction in southeast Georgia.

The ground-mounted solar power project will be constructed near Hazlehurst, Ga., in Jeff Davis County. It will be one of the largest solar generating facilities in Georgia. The solar array will occupy about 135 acres and will incorporate over 87,000 solar modules. Once completed, the solar array will generate more than 43,000 MWh of renewable energy annually.

Under an agreement with owner-operator Silicon Ranch Corp., Green Power EMC will receive all the energy produced by the solar project over a 25-year period. Construction is scheduled to begin this year, and the facility will be ready to produce electricity in late 2015.

The Hazlehurst project is the result of a request for proposals issued in late 2013 to add more solar energy to Green Power EMC’s portfolio. The company already purchases the output of two solar projects, a 115 kW rooftop array near Athens, Ga. and a 150 kW ground-mounted array near Warner Robins, Ga.

The project will nearly double the total renewable capacity of Green Power EMC — from the current 32 MW to about 52 MW.
