GSE’s North Carolina Solar Farms Achieve 106% Production
DEERFIELD BEACH, FL, July 1, 2012 – Green States Energy, Inc. (GSE) announced mid-year performance results for its six North Carolina solar PV generating facilities. When adjusted for weather and maintenance factors, the combined performance of the solar farms was 106.3% of projections.
GSE Chief Technology Officer Dave Yakerson said, “The most important indicator of the performance of a solar generating facility is the weather and maintenance adjusted figure. There will always be certain variations in weather, and occasional maintenance impacts – so it is essential to eliminate those variables in order to determine how well a facility is actually operating in comparison to projections. Needless to say, we are extremely pleased with these results for the first 6-months of operation”.
Green States Energy’s six North Carolina solar farms represent a combined 5.2 MW of solar electricity generation. The solar farms are located in Clay and Cherokee Counties, and were all placed into service in late December of 2011.
