McCarthy recently completed a new 55-MWdc solar facility in Hazlehurst, Ga., which will provide clean power at cost-competitive rates for the next 30 years. McCarthy’s Renewable Energy & Storage Group served as the Engineer, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contractor as a part of our 13th utility-scale solar project completed together with Silicon Ranch.

Supporting growth in the clean energy job sector and local community, McCarthy hired more than 180 local workers for the ongoing project.
