In May 2020, construction began on the 86-megawatt (MWac) Snipesville I Solar Farm in Jeff Davis County, Georgia. Silicon Ranch and its project partners officially commissioned the project in December 2020 after 8 months of construction. Thank you to all of the 250+ men and women who put in over 300,000 manhours to complete the project.

Through a Power Purchase Agreement, Snipesville I will provide the renewable power it generates at cost-competitive rates to Green Power EMC, the renewable energy supplier for 38 Georgia Electric Membership Corporations (EMCs) throughout the state.

Snipesville I expands Silicon Ranch’s presence in Jeff Davis County, where it already owns and operates three solar projects totaling 112-megawatts (MWac) in Hazlehurst. As a result of its previous investments, Silicon Ranch already stands among the largest taxpayers in Jeff Davis County, and its new project will contribute significant additional tax revenues for the local community for years to come.

An Expanded Partnership
“More than 30 EMCs will share in the energy produced by this new facility, and we are grateful for the support from our members and for the partnership we have with Silicon Ranch. We are proud that in addition to providing our members with reliable, affordable, renewable energy, our work can further support economic development in Jeff Davis County.”
