Georgia adds 23.5MW of solar power to electrical grid

The two solar power sites have  a combined capacity of 23.5MW  and will deliver solar energy to Georgia Power, the largest subsidiary of Southern Co. Commissioned in Dec. 2013, the solar installations utilize 78,160 solar photovoltaic panels to generate enough power annually for nearly 6,000 homes.

Origis Energy, Atlanta, an investment and development firm focused on deployment of utility-scale and distributed generation commercial solar photovoltaic (PV) systems, has completed two solar power plants in Georgia, representing the state’s second largest solar installations. The two solar power sites, with a combined capacity of 23.5MW, are located in Camilla and Woodbury, Ga., and will deliver solar energy to Georgia Power, the largest subsidiary of Southern Co., one of the nation's largest generators of electricity, under the utility’s Large-Scale Solar Initiative.

Commissioned in Dec. 2013, the solar installations utilize 78,160 solar photovoltaic panels to generate enough power annually for nearly 6,000 homes. The green energy production of the solar plants will reduce CO2 emissions by approximately 27,000 tons each year. Georgia Power’s solar programs are expected to result in nearly 800MW of solar capacity when fully implemented, for the largest voluntary solar portfolio and one of the largest in the nation.
