“Wapello Solar highlights RES’s vision to create a future where everyone has access to affordable zero carbon energy, and we are pleased to see this project achieve commercial operation,” said Tim Jordan, senior VP of solar construction at RES. “This project is a real credit to all the construction workers, suppliers and stakeholders who worked tirelessly to get to the finish line.”

Occupying nearly 800 acres of land in Louisa County, the project features 318,000 Risen Energy bifacial solar panels, which are fixed to FTC Solar’s Voyager single-axis trackers, and is powered by 34 Sungrow inverters.

Central Iowa Power Cooperative (CIPCO) is purchasing the energy through a 25-year power purchase agreement.
