A 4.1-MW solar project is coming to the Tri-County EMC district in Putnam County, Georgia. The project, developed by SolAmerica Energy, should reach interconnection and commissioning within the next month. Putnam Erickson 2 PV solar project uses First Solar thin-film modules.
“As a locally-owned electric cooperative, we are committed to investing in the communities that we serve. So when SolAmerica approached us about partnering with them on a project within our service area in Putnam County, we saw it as an ideal fit,” said Ray Grinberg, CEO of Tri-County EMC. “This locally-produced solar energy will allow us to continue to diversify our fuel mix by providing low-cost solar energy for the next 25 years.”
“This collaborative approach to project development demonstrates how clean energy projects unlock value at every level,” commented Jatin Khanna, Manager of Distributed Generation at First Solar. “We are proud to be powering Putnam Erickson 2 with technology designed and developed here in the United States.”
