ESA Renewables LLC, a turnkey solar system provider, has begun commercial operation of a 200 kW solar project near Arlington, Ga. According to the company, this is the largest ground-mounted solar farm in Georgia.
ESA Renewables engineered and constructed the power plant, which was conceived and developed by Trey Pippin, a south Georgia pecan farmer. The system features modules made by Georgia-based Suniva Inc., PV Powered inverters, Schletter's FS racking system and a Fat Spaniel monitoring system.
ESA notes that it was able to bring this project online within 30 days of beginning construction, which was ahead of its scheduled completion date. All electricity generated by the system is being sold to Georgia Power under a five-year power purchase agreement. After that period, all power generated will be used to compensate for the electricity costs of operating Pippin's farm.
