39,000MWh of electricity per year
The facility is located on approximately 150 acres in Taylor County, Georgia. The project consists of more than 180,000 of First Solar’s thin-film solar panels.
Construction began in July 2015, with Strata Solar managing the engineering, procurement and construction of the facility. Southern Power provides the on-site operation and maintenance of the facility in partnership with First Solar. Southern Power acquired the 20-megawatt Butler Solar Farm in June 2015. Georgia Power purchases the energy generated from the 20-MW farm under a 20-year power purchase agreement.
