Origis Energy USA, Inc, a Miami based solar development and construction firm, selected RES (Renewable Energy Systems) to construct the »Tanglewood« solar project, a 57.5 MW(ac) solar farm in Mitchell County, Georgia, USA. Origis Energy developed the solar site as one of the facilities under the Georgia Power Renewable Energy Development Initiative (REDI) serving the utility’s customers participating in the Commercial and Industrial REDI (C&I REDI) program. This contract represents the first construction partnership between Origis Energy and RES. Origis Energy will own and operate the facility.
»Tanglewood« solar is one of two solar plants under the Georgia Power C&I REDI program announced in April 2018. Construction on the »Camilla«, GA based project began in June 2019. »Tanglewood« solar represents continued solar development in Camilla by both firms.
RES reports construction of the solar farm will employ approximately 200 to 250 laborers, operators and electricians at peak construction periods. The full engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract will utilize Nextracker’s smart solar tracker system and approximately 180,000 First Solar Series 6 modules.
