Solar PV Project ( Solar Thermal Magazine) – A ribbon cutting ceremony took place for the completion of a 2-MW solar project in Donalsonville, GA. The celebration strated at 9 AM and snack and coffee are provided to guests. Sharon Lee from Cantsink, Dakin Spain from Office of Solar Development and Jack Hachmann with Washington Gas spoke at the event.
Sharon Lee, Director of Marketing at Cantsink, said,
It was a pleasure to work with such a progressive county that sees the many benefits of having a solar project in their community. The project required no roads or infrastructure for the county to undertake and yet the county will receive tax dollars for years to come. An exciting win-win!
The solar project is one of the 210 MW awarded under the GA Power’s ASI program. Office of Solar Development is the developer of the project, Radiance Solar performed the electrical work, and Cantsink Manufacturing performed all of the engineering, procurement and construction. The installation is a ground-mounted system composed of the Brilliant Rack fixed tilt ground-mounting solution and more than 6,000 solar panels.
The project will be owned and operated by Washington Gas Energy Systems under a 20-year Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with Georgia Power, and is expected to produce over 3,000 megawatt hours of electricity per year.
