Baldwin, Georgia-based Fieldale Farms Corporation this week partnered with Georgia Power in a groundbreaking ceremony for a new solar farm.

“As part of Fieldale’s ongoing sustainability efforts, this 6-acre solar farm will produce carbon-free, renewable energy to be used by the Fieldale Corporate Complex and will offset approximately 1,780,000 pounds of CO2 every year,” Fieldale Farms’ marketing manager Terri Limback said.

Georgia Power noted that the farm will be a 1.5 megawatt array and will produce approximately 184,000 kilowatt hours of electricity per month. The average U.S. home uses roughly 900 kilowatt hours of electricity per month, according to the Energy Information Administration. Thus, the new array will produce enough electricity to power roughly 204 homes per month.
