American Electric Power Co. Inc. subsidiary AEP OnSite Partners said June 6 that the 7-MW Northwest Jacksonville Solar Partners solar farm has been energized for commercial operations.
The AEP OnSite Partners-owned project includes solar panels with single-axis trackers to more effectively follow the movement of the sun. The project was developed in partnership with Global Resource Options, known as groSolar, and JEA, the municipal utility for Jacksonville, Fla.
The Jacksonville solar farm will produce about 17,000 MWh during its first year. EDF Renewable Energy is the parent company of groSolar.
