On June 23, 2020, Silicon Ranch and PCL Construction Services began construction on the Odom Solar Farm, a 20-megawatt (MWac) solar project in Colquitt County, Georgia. In December 2020, the solar farm became operational and is part of a portfolio of Silicon Ranch projects that supply power to Walton EMC as part of the utility’s agreement to supply 100 percent renewable energy for Facebook’s data center in Newton County, Georgia.

Concern for Community
“Because our customers own us, Walton EMC’s primary focus is serving their needs. Our partner, Silicon Ranch, has enabled us to supply Facebook with the renewable energy they desire for the Newton Data Center. Besides being good citizens and contributing to the economic wellbeing of the communities where they locate, Silicon Ranch also cares for the environment through their Regenerative Energy platform. This fits perfectly with our principle of ‘concern for community.'”
