Groundbreaking for Dublin's system took place on March 11; Jacoby
Development's sale of its project to Dominion Resources was announced on March
Dominion will build the Azalea Solar Power Facility and sell the power to Cobb
Electric Membership Corp., one of the largest electric cooperatives in the
state. Power production is expected to begin late this year.
Dublin's system will be spread out over the Dublin High School campus and
include rooftop arrays, ground mounts and dual axis trackers.
"The Dublin project utilized a unique legal structure and was the first in
Georgia to be financed with taxable bonds," John L. Gornall Jr., Co-Chair of
Arnall Golden Gregory's ("AGG") Renewable and Alternative Energy Practice,
Dr. Chuck Ledbetter, Superintendent of Dublin City Schools, said the solar
power system will help contain costs. "As educators struggle with decreasing
revenues, the ability to not only reduce operating costs with solar power but
also to essentially stabilize our energy costs for the next 25 years is a huge
benefit to our school system," he said. "This will allow us to focus more of
our resources on our primary mission – student learning."
Arnall Golden Gregory's Neil P. Mulcahy also worked on the Dublin project, and
Scott A. Fisher, Mark A. Gould Jr., and Andrew J. Schutt worked on the Jacoby
AGG's Renewable and Alternative Energy Practice represents owners, developers
