The recent Houston Solar Flip-The-Switch ceremony in May 2022 showcased how Georgia’s electric cooperatives are working together to meet the renewable energy demands of Georgia’s residents and businesses. Green Power EMC and Silicon Ranch were joined by leaders from Houston County and statewide elected officials to dedicate the new 68-megawatt (MWAC) Houston Solar project in Elko.

“My role serves to help Houston County grow and thrive, and through the collaboration and dedication of many integral local leaders, I am proud that this solar site will help our community do just that. This project was built by the hands of hundreds of residents from here in Houston County and the surrounding area, and thanks to the commitment of Georgia’s EMCs, this significant investment by Silicon Ranch will provide long-term economic benefits to our community for many years.”

– Tommy Stalnaker, Chairman of the Houston County Board of Commissioners
