Georgia Power military solar power project approved

Georgia Power was approved to build a 46-MW solar power plant at the Marine Corps Logistics Base Albany.

The Georgia Public Service Commission approved the project to be developed by Georgia Power, a unit of Southern Co. (NYSE: SO), in coordination with the military. The utility is working under a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Department of the Navy to finalize details.

The MCLB Albany solar project is expected to begin service by the end of 2016. The project brings to more than 160-MW the amount of on-base solar capacity brought online by the end of 2016. Other projects in progress with the military include the Georgia 3x30 with the U.S. Army, three 30-MW solar projects under construction at Fort Benning, fort Gordon and Fort Stewart, and a 30-MW solar project with the Department of the Navy at SUBASE Kings Bay near St. Marys, Georgia.
