New 27 MW project near Hazlehurst latest to come on line in Georgia
San Rafael, Calif., December 10, 2015 — A new 27 MW DC solar project in Georgia propels SunLink Corporation beyond 350 MW DC of projects in 2015 in the southeastern United States and cements the company's position as the ground mount market leader in the region. Georgia recently celebrated the new 135-acre solar facility, located in Jeff Davis County near Hazlehurst, which was made possible in part by SunLink's engineering services and mounting solutions.
"SunLink's incredible success with utility-scale and large commercial projects in the southeast and around the globe is a testament to our ability to deliver winning solutions in connection with some of the largest and most complex solar projects ever developed. Our proven reputation as a trusted partner who addresses our customers' unique needs with a comprehensive approach to their specific situation continues to bring success to us, our partners and the southeast region overall," said SunLink CEO Michael Maulick.
The southeast has made headlines this year for its favorable solar policies and has been recognized as a booming U.S. solar market poised for even more growth in the coming year.
"According to the Q4'15 edition of the IHS North America Solar Intelligence Service, Georgia is forecast to install over 700 MW of new PV capacity between 2015 and 2016 with over 85 percent being utility-scale installations," said Camron Barati, solar analyst for IHS Technology. In 2015 alone, SunLink has been involved with many of the larger-scale solar projects under development in Georgia, North Carolina and throughout the region.
"2015 has been a banner year for SunLink. We have broadened our product portfolio to give our customers the utmost project flexibility and greater long-term return on investment, while doubling down on the services our partners need to more rapidly scale their businesses," continued Maulick. "As we enter 2016, watch for SunLink to again raise the bar on the quality, security and intelligence of solar solutions on the market while we continue to grow in the southeast U.S. and worldwide."
