Three Area Solar Projects To Produce Clean Energy For Talquin Electric Co-Op
February 2nd, 2022
BRISTOL – Three utility solar projects are taking shape for Talquin Electric Cooperative members, with one under construction on Hoecake Road in Bristol with two others being built in Gadsden and Wakulla counties.
The projects are being developed by Origis Energy and will be constructed, owned and operated by Origis. The solar projects will deliver clean energy at competitive rates under Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) executed between Talquin Electric Cooperative, Seminole Electric Cooperative and Origis.
Representatives celebrated the start of construction for the three projects. FL Solar D1 – Hinson Solar, a 4 MWAC project, is located in Gadsden County. FL Solar D2 – Hilliardville Solar, a 2 MWAC project, is located in Wakulla County, and FL Solar D3 – Bristol Solar, with a capacity rating of 0.63 MWAC, is located in Liberty County. Construction is slated for completion in the first quarter of 2022.
“At Talquin Electric, we are doing our part to provide clean energy to Members so we can all benefit from a clean environment,” said Tracy Bensley, General Manager at Talquin Electric. “These three projects will provide enough clean energy to replace fossil fuel-generated electricity for up to 1,400 homes in our area. We appreciate and value the commitment Seminole Electric and Origis Energy have provided to Talquin Members in making these projects a reality.”
