Stage One: The Rinehart Solar Farm – Stage I, located in Lake Mary, is a part of 10 MW utility scale solar photovoltaic plant utilizing 380,000 square feet of rooftop on multiple buildings on its production facility and surrounding buildings. The electricity produced by RSF is part of an off take agreement with Progress Energy Florida for renewable solar power.
The solar farm will generate an estimated 15 million kilowatt hours annually – enough to fulfill the average annual electricity needs of as many as 1,100 typical Florida households. As a clean energy project, it will stimulate the local economy by creating an estimated 100 high-paying, high-skilled jobs while building local expertise in solar energy.
Stage One, completed in 2011, includes over 5000 crystalline silicon panels totaling 1500 kW (1.5 MW).
Stage Two is a ground-mount system scalable up to 8,000 kW (8 MW).
