Turning on Wiregrass Solar –Col. Ricketts
At the February VLCIA board meeting, Col. Ricketts said groundbreaking
for the solar plant is scheduled for February 21st with production
less than two months after that.
Here you can see his timeline slide.
It’s a bit hard to read, but he mentioned at least these items:
Site preparation starts 16 Feb 2011.
Groundbreaking Monday 21st Feb 2011.
Commissioning ceremony and turn the switch on Wednesday 16th April 2011.
Apparently deploying a solar plant takes a lot less time than some types of projects. You can watch and listen to his presentation:
Regular monthly meeting, Valdosta-Lowndes County Industrial Authority
Norman Bennett, Roy Copeland, Tom Call, Mary Gooding, Jerry Jennett chairman (absent),
J. Stephen Gupton attorney, Brad Lofton Executive Director,
Allan Ricketts Program Manager, 15 February 2011.

Nice looking mounts they’re using, although the angle in the picture is
inappropriate for our latitude.
Maybe they’re adjustable.
Curious how if VLCIA
shouldn’t be the front man
that Col. Ricketts always seems to be the front man for anything
having to do with Sterling Planet.
