TALLAHASSEE – 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 on Oct. 3.
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.
