(Bloomberg) — Southern Co., owner of Georgia’s largest
utility, is building 90 megawatts of solar capacity on three
Army bases in the state.
Southern’s Georgia Power unit began construction last week
on solar arrays at Fort Gordon and Fort Stewart, Atlanta-based
Southern said in a statement Friday. The third project will be
at Fort Benning.
The three solar farms will each cost about $75 million and
they are expected to be operational by the end of next year. The
electricity will be fed into the local power grid.
