The Taylor Solar projects are ground-mounted, utility-scale solar installations located nearby one another within 12 acres of a Butler, Georgia, industrial park.
The Taylor Solar installations total 3.0-megawatts (MW) comprised of 9,465 Canadian Solar and Trina solar panels, 60 Chint SCA28KTL-DO and 36 SMA 24000TL-US inverters, as well as ground-mounted RBI racking systems. Completed in December 2014, the projects produce over 4.5 million kilowatt hours (kWh) of electricity per year and created 60 jobs during construction. The production of these facilities is enough to power approximately 300 homes and prevent the annual release of over 3,000 tons of carbon dioxide from non-renewable power plants.
These projects were acquired from local developers as late-stage development assets and were completed as part of the Georgia Power Advanced Solar Initiative, a utility program to promote the creation of clean, green, renewable energy.
