Project Description

Inovateus Solar is stoked to announce our largest -to date- completed installation of the 16 MWAC system Rincon Solar 1 power plant for Georgia Power located near Savannah, Georgia. This installation is a part of the Georgia Power Advanced Solar Initiative program and was the second of two projects won by Inovateus under this program. Previously, the land was used for harvesting timber, however the environmental benefits solar offered proved to be a substantially greater investment. The most notable aspect of the Rincon project is the 230 kVA interconnection, the first such engineering feat in our project portfolio!

Given the robustness of the local transmission corridor, careful planning and in-depth studies were required to make sure there was no disruption to the network when the solar plant came online. Rincon has been sending clean energy to Georgia Power as part of the utility’s power purchase agreement with owner-operator AES Distributed Energy since the end of 2016. The system is expected to provide at least 32,000 megawatt-hours of solar generated electricity annually, enough to power more than 2800 households on the utility’s grid network.
