ESA to install 22 PV systems in Tennessee and North Carolina


The news comes as ESA confirms the acceptance of 22 Participation Agreements for customer-sited projects through the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA), and the local co-ops in both the North Carolina and Tennessee areas.

The company will install the systems as part of the TVA Generation Partners pilot program, the aim of which is to "demonstrate the feasibility of purchasing electric energy from residential, commercial, and industrial customers generated by qualified renewable generation resources." Under the program’s conditions, the systems must be installed and online within six months of the acceptance date.

ESA will work on engineering and construction of the photovoltaic systems, in addition to operating and maintaining them for the duration of the agreement period.
