Origis Energy starts building 19 MW of solar plants in Georgia
Oct 8, 2013 - US solar plants developer Origis Energy said Monday it had started construction works on 19 MW solar systems in the state of Georgia.
The capacity includes two solar plants of 16 MW and 3 MW, to be located in Georgia’s Mitchell and Meriwether counties, respectively. Origis Technics, a unit of Origis Energy, will be the general contractor of the projects, while several local firms will take care of constructing the plants. Among the companies are Radiance Solar, United Renewable Energy, Oxford Construction and Georgia Power Services. US turnkey solar systems developer Radiance Solar was selected as Origis Technics’ main subcontractor and will lead the design and engineering team.
The two photovoltaic (PV) installations are scheduled to be switched on by December 2013. Once completed, their output will be sold to Georgia Power, a unit of Southern Co (NYSE:SO), under 20-year power purchase agreements (PPAs).
