Strata Solar To Build Alabama Power's First Utility-Scale Solar

Installation is set to begin in the first quarter of 2016.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C., Nov. 10, 2015 -- Strata Solar will soon begin installation of the first utility-scale solar projects for Alabama Power at the Anniston Army Depot and Fort Rucker Army Base.


The Alabama Public Service Commission gave its approval for Alabama Power to build a 10.6 MW AC solar facility at Anniston Army Depot and a 10.6 MW AC solar facility at Fort Rucker. Alabama Power awarded Strata Solar the engineering, procurement and construction contract for these projects. Installation is set to begin in the first quarter of 2016.

"We are thrilled to be providing these high-quality solar projects to Alabama Power that together will put both the Anniston Army Depot and Fort Rucker Army Base closer to their energy independence goals," said Markus Wilhelm, Strata Solar chief executive officer.

Strata Solar has engineered, procured and constructed utility-scale projects in numerous southeastern states, but this occasion marks the first solar projects of this size for Alabama Power to add to its electricity portfolio.

Introducing RockIt Smart Slide

Introducing RockIt Smart Slide

Introducing RockIt Smart Slide - the ultimate solution for fast and easy installation of the rail-less RockIt racking system on composition shingle roofs. Smart Slide conforms to UL 441 and TAS 100 (A)-95 for wind and wind-driven rain, providing a super-strong watertight seal that is achieved through compression, in most cases without the need for additional sealant. The waterproofing sealant is embedded deep into the granules of the shingle, thanks to the integrated flexible foam layer that provides cushioning. This ensures a secure fit that conforms to any architectural-style shingle. With UltraGrip Technology™, you can rely on a secure installation, as it absorbs the movement created by thermal expansion and contraction. The pre-installed sealing pads are compatible with all composition shingle roofs, making it the ideal choice, even in ambient temperatures as low as 5 degrees.
