Renewable energy supplier Green Power EMC and leading solar producer Silicon Ranch were joined by statewide elected officials and leaders from Houston County to dedicate the new 68-megawatt (MWAC) Houston Solar project near Perry, Georgia. 

Situated just off I-75, the Houston Solar site is one of the most visible solar energy projects in the state and exhibits how Georgia’s electric cooperatives are working together to satisfy the renewable energy demands of the state’s residents and businesses. The project marks clean energy generation from the seventh utility-scale solar facility brought online by partners Green Power EMC and Silicon Ranch.

Among the attendees present, the public representatives included Lt. Governor Geoff Duncan, Commissioner of Agriculture Gary Black, Members of the Georgia General Assembly and the Georgia Public Service Commission, as well as locally elected officials and leaders from Houston County.

The project was first announced in November 2020 by Governor Brian Kemp, who commended the partnership between Green Power EMC and Silicon Ranch for their role in supporting economic development throughout the state.

“We are proud to help our members grow their diverse generation portfolio with affordable solar energy that benefits their consumers while also delivering meaningful value to the land, the local community, and the environment,” said Jeff Pratt, President, Green Power EMC. “The Houston Solar project illustrates Georgia’s EMCs’ commitment to and leadership in responsible solar development.”

Regenerative Energy delivers significant environmental, social, and economic outcomes that go far beyond the substantial positive impacts a solar facility can generate by itself, creating added value for the Houston County community and project stakeholders.

The terms of the 30-year agreement with Silicon Ranch denote that Green Power EMC will purchase all the energy and environmental attributes generated by the site on behalf of its member EMCs, while Silicon Ranch owns and operates the facility.
