The Macon County Solar project is a 1.0-megawatt (MW) array located on six acres of land in rural Macon County, Georgia.
The project, built adjacent to a large sod farm, was completed as part of the Georgia Power Advanced Solar Initiative, a utility program to encourage the growth of clean, green renewable power in the state.
The ground-mounted, utility-scale installation utilizes 3,225 Trina solar panels, 36 SMA string inverters, and an RBI ground-mount racking system.
Completed in April 2015, the installation generates over 1.5 million kilowatt hours (kWh) of electricity per year, enough to power 100 local homes and prevent the annual release of over 1,000 tons of carbon dioxide from non-renewable power plants.
