Solar Farm Project in Hope Mills, North Carolina (Solar Thermal Magazine)
Innovative Solar Systems, LLC has secured all approvals and is ready to start construction on an 80 MW Solar Farm Project in North Carolina. ISS has all approvals in place including interconnection agreements, purchase power agreements, state, federal and regulatory approvals for Innovative Solar 46, an 80 MW solar farm project located in Hope Mills, NC.
This project will be the single largest solar farm project ever built in the United States on this side of the Rockies. John Green, CEO and company spokesman, states that the company is very excited to start construction sometime this year after securing the final owner for this project.
ISS is in negotiations with many large corporate entities that wish to own this solar farm project long term after construction. The 15 year purchase power agreement (PPA) and flat, easy build project site make this a financially attractive solar farm project for many potential buyers, states Green. Innovative Solar Systems, LLC has secured a very credit-worthy EPC that will construct this project in a timely fashion while providing the required long term operating and maintenance contracts needed for IS46. Choosing an experienced and credit-worthy EPC for a project of this size is critical to the project’s success states Green of ISS.
Utility Scale projects like IS46-80MW are not new to the ISS team as the company has become one of the largest developers of utility scale solar farm projects in the United States. Building these massive scale solar farm projects require more expertise than building a New York skyscraper, states Green. ISS is considered to be one the most experienced developers, if not the single best developer of these large scale projects due to the ISS’s strong background in engineering and land matters.
