About

This site features over 21,660 solar panels that generate 9,600 MWh of electricity every year, which is roughly the same amount of energy needed to power 750 average homes in North Carolina.

 

Economic Impact

Construction of this project took about 14 weeks and contributed over $250,000 in direct expenditures in Columbus County for wages, lodging and supplies. Columbus County also saw an increase in the property tax base of approximately $12 million, with no requirements for additional schools, sewers, roads, or other county services.

 

Environmental Impact

Each year, the Delco solar farm will offset approximately 5,200 tons of CO2 which is the same as reducing automobile travel by 8 million miles.
