After a significant delay, Origis Energy is back on track to complete a 52 MW-AC solar project in Southern Mississippi. In May pv magazine reported the beginning of construction on the Sumrall 2 project in Lamar County, and on Monday Origis confirmed that its internal construction division has installed the first crystalline silicon modules on the plant’s single-axis trackers.
Origis cites a “minor weather-related delay” for the four-month gap between the official beginning of construction and the installation of modules.
In the interim, two other large solar projects have been completed in Mississippi – Origis’ Sumrall 1 project, also in Lamar County, and Silicon Ranch’s 50 MW-AC project near Hattiesburg.
When complete the Sumrall 2 project will sell electricity to Cooperative Energy, an electricity wholesale company which purchases electricity on behalf of member electric cooperatives in Mississippi.
Origis expects to complete the Sumrall 2 project by the end of 2017.
