PowerSouth Energy Cooperative and Origis Energy signed a PPA for a new 80-MW solar project to be constructed in Covington County, Alabama. The Wing Solar project will be PowerSouth Energy Cooperative’s largest solar project once it comes online in late 2022.
“Our mission is to safely deliver reliable and affordable energy to promote development of the communities our members serve,” says Gary Smith, PowerSouth president and CEO. “Solar energy is a cost-effective resource for a portion of our energy needs. Affordable, zero-carbon, renewable energy supports our mission — today and in the future.”
“We commend the leadership at PowerSouth and its members for their vision to bring clean, cost effective solar energy to their customers,” said Guy Vanderhaegen, Origis Energy’s CEO and president. “We are confident that determination will result, even in these challenging times, in a successful completion of Wing Solar in Alabama.”
