17.01.2018: Origis Energy USA, Inc, a Miami based solar development and construction firm, and Reedy Creek Improvement District announced a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) for a 50 MW solar facility to be constructed in Orange County, Florida. Once complete, the solar facility developed, built and owned by Origis Energy, will be located on approximately 270 acres and will generate approximately 120,000 MWh each year.
The Origis Energy designs call for the use of single axis tracking technology, approximately 518,000 solar panel modules and will interconnect to the Reedy Creek Improvement District power distribution system. The project is anticipated to start by late spring 2018 and be completed by year end 2018.
