Hannah Solar, LLC has spent the last few weeks planting the roots for the first solar farms in Oglethorpe, Georgia.
The two solar farms are 1 megawatt in size and each consists of 3,360 solar panels. Hannah Solar leased five acres from local residents, Chase Family Farms, and is working to repurpose the property for green energy production. Each array generates enough electricity to power approximately 200 homes and save thousands of gallons of water.
“South Georgia’s agricultural community has always understood the importance of solar power” says Pete Marte, CEO of Hannah Solar, “President Jimmy Carter, native of Plains, Georgia, was the first president to have solar panels installed on the White House.”
Solar has continued to prosper throughout the southern regions of Georgia. As one of Georgia’s leading solar integrators, Hannah Solar has completed projects for numerous farmers and businesses in the surrounding towns including Bainbridge, Brinson, Donalsonville, Douglas, Valdosta, and Vidalia.
Donald Chase, owner of Chase Family Farms, entered into a long term lease agreement with Hannah Solar for developing the array. The energy produced from each solar farm is contracted for 20 years with Georgia Power through their Advanced Solar Initiative.
Chase explains, “We believe in solar energy because we understand the importance of harvesting the sun. The sun is a natural, powerful resource and harnessing its energy is beneficial for both the environment and our community.”
Hannah Solar has employed several local contractors, electricians, and laborers to install the system. As the fastest growing renewable energy source in the United States, the solar industry employs over 120,000 individuals across the country. Solar energy provides outstanding economic and environmental benefits that demonstrate the growing demand for solar is as natural as the source itself.
