In 2020, Sol Systems developed a 75-megawatt (MWdc) system, located in West Baton Rouge Parish, which is owned and operated by Helios, a partnership between Sol Systems and Nationwide Insurance. Entergy Louisiana is purchasing the energy produced by the project through a 20-year power purchase agreement. The project is the largest solar energy farm in the state of Louisiana.
The project brought more than 350 construction and installation jobs to the area, and it will provide ongoing, positive benefits to the community – clean energy and approximately $6.4 million in tax revenue – over the next 30 years. The system is projected to offset the equivalent of nearly 19,000 passenger vehicles’ greenhouse gas emissions annually.
