ATLANTA - Feb. 14, 2014 - PRLog -- Radiance Solar Completes Development for 20.3 MWDC Solar Power Plant in Pelham, Georgia

ATLANTA, February 14, 2014
– Radiance Solar (www.radiancesolar.com), a leading solar company based in Atlanta, has completed construction and commissioning of a 20.3 MWDC solar power plant in Pelham, Georgia. The 120-acre facility, developed and owned by Origis Energy (www.origisenergy.com), is one of Georgia’s first large-scale solar power plants and consists of 67,600 photovoltaic panels.

A team of experienced Georgia companies led construction of the solar project:

- Radiance Solar performed design, electrical engineering and primary construction services.

- Cantsink Manufacturing/Cantsink of Atlanta provided and installed the more than 8,500 foundations for the solar racking system.

- Oxford Construction performed grading and civil works.

- Georgia Power Services constructed the high voltage AC system connecting the solar plant to Georgia Power’s transmission grid.

- Southern Burglar and Fire Alarm performed the surveillance and security systems installation.

“Radiance Solar is proud to be partner with Origis Energy on one of the largest solar farms in the Southeast,” said Jamie Porges, COO and Co-Founder, Radiance Solar.  “Georgia is rapidly becoming a national leader in low-cost solar installations and we are excited to be part of this trend.”

“We strongly believe it was very important for us to be able to work with such an excellent team of Georgia contractors on this project,” said Johan Vanhee, COO & Partner, Origis Energy. “As one of Origis’ first major projects in North America, we are thrilled at how successful the process worked. Starting with our new utility scale solar accomplishments in the State of Georgia, Origis Energy is aiming to increase its solar footprint in the U.S., which by the end 2016, should reach an installed capacity of roughly 300 MW of solar assets.”
