Infrastructure and Energy Alternatives Inc (IEA) this week said it has initiated construction on a 25-MW solar photovoltaic (PV) park in the state of Georgia on behalf of Silicon Ranch Corp.
IEA’s subsidiary IEA Constructors LLC was hired by the Nashville-based solar power producer as the Appling Solar Farm project’s engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor. Its tasks involve the design, construction, commissioning and handover of the power plant.
The PV park will be installed near the city of Baxley in the southeastern part of Georgia, consisting of around 95,000 locally-produced solar modules by Hanwha Q CELLS and NEXTracker single-axis trackers. Apart from being its owner and providing funds for its development, Silicon Ranch will operate the power plant in the long term.
IEA has so far deployed more than 800 MW of solar PV capacity across the US and Canada, according to the press release.
