The Florida state capital might’ve made national headlines after seeing its first snowfall in decades on Wednesday, but the City of Tallahassee also recently marked a major renewable energy milestone: the completion of its first community solar farm.
According to a city press release,
crews finished construction on the 20 MW, 120-acre solar farm last
month. Located on property of the Tallahassee International Airport
(TLH), the project was a partnership with Origis Energy USA and included
the installation of more than 200,000 thin-film solar panels. Earlier
this week, solar energy generated by the farm became fully integrated
into the city’s electric grid.
