US renewables developer Origis Energy revealed on Tuesday that it had hired Renewable Energy Systems (RES) for engineering, procurement and construction of its 57.5MW solar farm in Mitchell County, Georgia.

The Tanglewood solar project is being developed through utility Georgia Power’s commercial and industrial (C&I) renewable energy development initiative, which counts Google, Johnson & Johnson, Target and Walmart as long-term customers. Each corporate offtaker receives renewable energy credits (RECs) generated from the solar resources their subscription helped develop.

Tanglewood is expected to start operations in June 2020. It will comprise of approximately 180,000 First Solar Series 6 modules and NEXTracker’s smart solar tracker system.

Origis Energy will own and operate the project, which will have an estimated capacity of 77,000kWp.

Another major plant supplying to Georgia Power’s C&I renewable energy programme is the 120MW Dougherty County solar facility. It is being developed by NextEra Energy through subsidiary Dougherty County Solar LLC. It is scheduled to begin operations by the end of 2019. 

Origis Energy has five operational and under development projects in the state, including the 200MW GA Solar 4 project it bought from First Solar in October 2018. The farm, which has been operational since December 2019, was billed by the company at the time of purchase as the state's largest solar farm.

Renewable Energy Systems has global operations but is headquartered in the UK.
