Strata Solar will soon begin installation of the first utility-scale solar power projects for Alabama Power at the Anniston Army Depot and Fort Rucker Army Base.

The Alabama Public Service Commission gave its approval for Alabama Power to build a 10.6 MW AC solar power facility at Anniston Army Depot and a 10.6 MW AC solar facility at Fort Rucker.

Alabama Power awarded Strata Solar the engineering, procurement and construction contract for these projects. Installation is set to begin in the first quarter of 2016.

"We are thrilled to be providing these high-quality solar projects to Alabama Power that together will put both the Anniston Army Depot and Fort Rucker Army Base closer to their energy independence goals," said Markus Wilhelm, Strata Solar chief executive officer.

Strata Solar has engineered, procured and constructed utility-scale projects in numerous southeastern states, but this occasion marks the first solar projects of this size for Alabama Power to add to its electricity portfolio.
