Project Overview

Hilliardville Solar is One of Three in a Portfolio of Cost-effective Clean Energy Projects for Talquin Electric and Seminole Electric

Members of Talquin Electric Cooperative are now getting the clean, cost-effective energy benefits from 7 MWac of solar energy, enough electricity to power approximately 1,400 homes. Officials from the cooperative, along with Seminole Electric Cooperative, Origis Energy and local community leaders dedicated the three new solar facilities in October 2023.  

The projects are Hinson Solar, a 4 MWac project, located in Gadsden County, FL; Hilliardville Solar, a 2 MWac project, located in Wakulla County; and Bristol Solar, with a capacity rating of 0.63 MWac, located in Liberty County. 

All three projects were developed, constructed and are owned by Origis Energy. Each will deliver clean energy at competitive rates under Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) executed between Seminole Electric Cooperative, Talquin’s wholesale power provider, and Origis. 

“These three projects represent a significant step forward and we are excited to provide predictable, affordable, clean electricity to our Members,” said Tracy Bensley, General Manager of Talquin Electric Cooperative. “Bringing these projects to fruition will generate enough clean energy to replace fossil fuel-generated electricity for up to 1,400 homes in our area while ensuring stable rates for our Members and shielding them from the fluctuations of traditional fuel costs.”
