Constellation, a subsidiary of Exelon Corporation, and United Renewable Energy completed a 1-MW solar generation project at Owens Corning’s manufacturing facility in Fairburn, Ga.
The project is part of Georgia Power’s strategy to encourage and cultivate renewable energy sources in Georgia under a program developed in coordination with and approved by the Georgia Public Service Commission.
“Constellation is pleased to work with Georgia Power and Owens Corning in our ongoing commitment to renewable energy and sustainable business operations,” said Gary Fromer, senior vice president of distributed energy at Constellation. “As a competitive energy company, we aim to provide customers a variety of options and distributed energy solutions that achieve their goals.”
Constellation financed, built, owns and maintains the solar power system. Georgia Power purchases electricity generated by the system and all the associated renewable energy certificates under a 30-year power purchase agreement with Constellation. Through a separate agreement, Owens Corning also receives renewable energy certificates from Constellation for leasing space for the solar panels at the Fairburn insulation manufacturing facility.
