The Orbital Energy Group subsidiary, Orbital Solar Services, has been awarded an EPC contract to construct a 132.2MWdc/100MWac solar farm in the Southeastern United States. The contract calls for OSS to design, engineer, and produce a utility-scale solar array to be delivered in early 2022. Under the Contract terms, OSS will provide full utility-scale EPC services, including substation construction. The project will consist of 350,000 solar panels installed across 800 acres of land and will provide power for 20,000 homes per year.
“This second project with an industry-leading, energy company, evidences OSS’s growing reputation for its technical expertise and abilities in designing and building these large, complex, utility-scale solar projects. We look forward to commencing work on this project and continuing our relationship with this large-scale energy producer.” said Brandon Martin, Orbital Solar Services CEO
Orbital Solar Services was selected based on its in-house engineering capabilities, supply chain relationships and proven track record of having executed more than 40 solar projects and over 600MWs. OSS is a well-recognized industry leader with over 50 years combined experience in the delivery and management of both commercial and renewable energy construction projects.
“We are thrilled by this project award, showcasing Orbital’s ability to provide services that contribute to reducing our nation’s carbon footprint,” said Jim O’Neil, Orbital Energy Group’s Vice-Chairman & CEO. “This project and others like it serve to expand OSS’s industry relationships based on a solid record of achievement, and the expertise to provide end-to-end solutions. By expanding relationships, as we have with this customer, we are positioning OEG/OSS to increase their presence in the renewable and alternative energy marketplace during the balance of 2021 and beyond.”
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
