SolAmerica Energy and Safari Energy completed development, construction and commissioning of thirteen solar projects in Georgia totaling 43 MW of generation capacity. SolAmerica developed, engineered and constructed the projects, and Safari Energy will be their long-term owner and operator.

Landowners, neighbors, and local governments in eleven counties worked in collaboration with SolAmerica and Safari Energy to bring these projects to completion, securing low-cost clean energy for ratepayers, spurring economic development, and increasing the tax base. 

The projects in this portfolio will provide energy directly to Georgia Power through long-term power purchase agreements (PPAs) under Georgia Power’s Renewable Energy Development Initiative.

“SolAmerica has been an incredible partner throughout the process of getting this solar portfolio up and running in Georgia. This is a great example of Safari Energy working with a solar developer to provide project funding and to operate the renewable energy projects upon completion. In the past year alone, our solar asset acquisition business has acquired over 100 MW and we now own assets in seven states from coast to coast,” said David Heyman, CEO of Safari Energy.

Atlanta-based SolAmerica Energy, LLC is a provider of turnkey solar energy solutions, specializing in the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) of ground-mount, rooftop and parking canopy solar systems designed for utilities and large commercial and industrial (C&I) facilities.

Safari Energy, LLC, based in New York City, is the solar partner of choice for commercial and industrial customers, real estate owners, public sector organizations and solar developers seeking competitive financial solutions for their projects.
