510nano Groundbreaking Ceremony Kicks Off Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday
Minority-Owned Company Celebrating Transforming A Cotton Field into A Solar Farm
“510 REPP One is special for us.” says President, Dr. Reginald Parker, “We believe that this is the largest solar farm developed, owned and operated by a minority owned-firm. This is a befitting kick-off for the MLK Holiday. The 5,490 plus panel solar farm will be built on land that formerly grew cotton.” Dr. Parker shared that his mother was a cotton share cropper from Georgia who used the life of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to inspire him. Seemingly, it did.
The keynote speech will be delivered by US DOE Director, the Honorable Dot Harris. Proclamations will be given by representatives from the offices of Congressman G. K. Butterfield, Senator Richard Burr, and Senator Kay Hagan. Local remarks will be given by N.C. Representative Michael Ray, Northampton County Commissioner Chair Robert V. Carter and Vice Chair Fannie P. Greene. Several other local officials will be in attendance, along with several 510nano shareholders and stakeholders.
