New solar in operation: Two facilities developed by Pine Gate Renewables

Charlotte-based solar developer Pine Gate Renewables says it has achieved commercial operation for two 14 MW solar facilities on opposites ends of the country— Darlington Solar in Darlington County, S.C., and Collier Solar in Deschutes County, Ore. The projects, both financed by Pine Gate partners Live Oak Bank and Sol Systems, will generate enough energy annually to power roughly 2,000 homes. This clean energy will be delivered to existing regional energy grid systems via power purchase agreements with area utilities.

Pine Gate RenewablesThe two solar facilities, placed into service at the end of 2016, are part of more than 1 gigawatt in portfolio projects that are currently in development. Pine Gate Renewables has secured off-taker and financing commitments for 250 MW in projects throughout S.C. and Ore., all of which will be operational by the end of this year.
