Co-op signs on for Silicon Ranch's largest project yet

Silicon Ranch Corp. has signed a deal with a Georgia green-energy cooperative to sell the entire output of its largest-ever project, a 52-megawatt solar array west of Savannah. The agreement with Green Power EMC, which supplies renewable energy to 38 utilities in Georgia, will cover 600 acres and service about 8,500 households. Silicon Ranch and Green Power EMC also are finalizing work on a 20-megawatt complex that will come online this fall.

Once completed, the 52 MW array will generate more than 134 million kilowatt hours of clean, renewable electricity annually. That amount of clean energy offsets 92,500 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions, equivalent to the annual emissions from burning 10,400,000 gallons of gasoline, or put another way, the emissions from more than 19,500 passenger cars.
