Origis Energy has announced the completion and grid-connection of two solar farms in the US state of Georgia, with a combined capacity of 23.5MW DC.

Located in the cities of Camilla and Woodbury, the two new DC plants will supply electricity to utility Georgia Power. Georgia Power, which is a subsidiary of mammoth utility holding company Southern Company, will purchase electricity from the Origis plants under its own Large Scale Solar Initiative, the latest round of which will see it purchase up to 50MW of solar power generation capacity by 2015.

Georgia Power expects to have brought nearly 800MW of PV generated power to the state by the close of its voluntary initiative programmes, which also include a distributed generation programme for small- and medium-scale PV installations.
