Arlington I Solar Farm
In October 2021, construction began on Arlington I, a 20-Megawatt solar farm for Green Power EMC in Early County, Georgia. Producing enough energy to power around 3,000 homes annually, the 20-Megawatt (MWac) facility officially began generating power in December 2021. Silicon Ranch commends the nearly 150 local craft workers who constructed Arlington I Solar Farm.
In Partnership With
Arlington I Solar Farm is part of a 194-MWac portfolio of projects announced in 2018 by Silicon Ranch and Green Power EMC. Silicon Ranch will provide the renewable power it generates at cost-competitive rates to Green Power EMC, the renewable power supplier for 38 Georgia EMCs throughout the state.
Silicon Ranch pioneered utility-scale solar in Georgia and remains a leader in the market, serving Green Power EMC and its member cooperatives with solar farms located in rural communities across the state. Collectively, the Georgia EMCs lead the nation among electric cooperatives for solar deployment.
