Project Description

Birdsong Peanut Company in Colquitt, Georgia adds a 1 MW solar array.

Hannah Solar provided a complete turnkey 1 MW solar array to Birdsong Peanut Company’s shelling and drying facility in Colquitt, Georgia. With experience and understanding of harvesting the sun, the Birdsong team realized that investing in solar as a new crop would give them a competitive advantage and help reduce their operating expenses. As part of the Georgia Power Advanced Solar Initiative, Birdsong Peanut was awarded a contract with Georgia Power to buy 100 percent of the power produced by their solar array for the next 20 years.
