Silicon Ranch — Hazlehurst

The new 52-megawatt (MWAC) solar facility in Hazlehurst, Ga., will provide clean power at cost-competitive rates to Green Power EMC for the next 30 years.

Silicon Ranch Corporation, a Nashville-based renewable energy provider, selected McCarthy’s Renewable Energy Team as the Engineer Procure Construction (EPC) contractor. McCarthy was responsible for the design, procurement, construction, commissioning, and handover of the solar project to developer Silicon Ranch, which will own and operate the facility. Construction began in April 2016 on the 480-acre utility-scale solar energy plant in Jeff Davis County and is expected to generate more than 134 million kilowatt hours of renewable energy annually to customers of Green Power EMC. During the eight-month construction period, more than 300 workers were employed, the majority of whom are local area residents.
