Phono Solar (Nanjing, China), a producer of monocrystalline and polycrystalline silicon solar photovoltaic (PV) modules, on December 1st, 2016 announced that the company has delivered 28 MW solar PV modules to Citizens Energy, a Boston, MA-based not-for-profit energy developer.

Phono Solar delivered 90,000 PV modules to Citizens Energy, owner and operator of the newly-commissioned site in Jenkins County, GA. Founded in 1979 by Joseph P. Kennedy II, Citizens Energy uses its for-profit subsidiaries to support charitable energy programs for low-income households.

Alpha Energy, a community scale wind and solar provider, supplied the general contracting work for the 28 MW site, employing one-third of the workers from local unions.

“The appetite for solar in Georgia has been steadily increasing. With current local infrastructure, state incentives and interconnection availability, Georgia is an ideal candidate for truly impactful solar projects,” said Brian Morrissey, Managing Director of Citizens Energy. Georgia Power will be the site energy off-taker through a power purchase agreement.

The 28 MW site in Jenkins County has now been commissioned and is producing solar power.
