Did you know South Central Equipment has a full pipe & steel division? As a matter of fact, we supplied all the pilings here in Willow at the site of the 2nd largest solar farm in the state.
This new 100kW project, which will generate enough energy to power 30 homes, is part of Renewable Independent Power Producers (Renewable IPP)’s focus on developing commercial-scale solar farms in the state of Alaska. With South Central Equipment to supply the pipe, they also contracted local groundwork & logistics company, Driven, LLC, to drive the pilings for the project.
On August 27th, 2019, Lisa Murkowski visited the solar site to talk about some of the opportunities and challenges faced by emerging solar projects and Renewable IPP’s vision for expansion.
According to Murkowski, “This meeting was not only a fascinating inside-look at the development of the second largest solar installation in the state, but also an encouraging reminder that Alaska has so much potential when it comes to renewable energy. Many of our projects to drive clean energy are in their pilot stage, but I look forward to helping mature these projects to ensure cleaner, more affordable energy for communities across the state.”
