Green Power EMC, the renewable energy supplier for 38 Georgia Electric Membership Corporations (EMCs), has reached an agreement with Silicon Ranch Corporation to purchase the full output of a new 20 megawatt (MW) solar project planned for construction in southeast Georgia.
Silicon Ranch also owns and operates Georgia's largest solar array in Social Circle, GA and Tennessee's largest solar facility at Volkswagen's Chattanooga Manufacturing facility. At the end of 2013, Silicon Ranch had successfully completed and is operating facilities totaling approximately 55 megawatts, making it one of the top 15 solar operators in the U.S.
Silicon Ranch's strategic approach allows it to provide best-in-class, turnkey solutions. Silicon Ranch's understanding of the key components of a project, including the regulatory, environmental and legal issues, ensures a seamless process from the planning phase into implementation and through successful completion, including the ongoing operation and maintenance for the life of the project. Silicon Ranch focuses on developing a comprehensive approach to align the multiple benefits of solar energy with a company's sustainability, marketing and business objectives.
As a long-term owner-operator of solar assets, Silicon Ranch is committed to the highest level of construction quality and ongoing maintenance. Silicon Ranch approaches each project from the perspective of being a citizen of the community where the facility is located. As such, we engage with the local stakeholders to ensure broad support for each project.
