Electricity generation is projected to reach over 9,000 MWh the first year of production, enough to power nearly 600 homes. Over the course of the expected 25-year life, output is expected to reach more than 200,000 MWh.
Power generated at the solar facility is put directly onto SMECO’s distribution system. Generation drops on overcast days (the amount of the drop correlates to the heaviness of the clouds). During the night, the project uses small amounts of power from the distribution system.
