Silicon Ranch was the first to develop utility-scale solar in Georgia. For example. the company developed the 100 MW Lumpkin Solar farm in Stewart County together with IEA and the 80 MW Lancaster Solar Farm in Calhoun County and the 107 MW Snipesville II Solar Farm in Jeff Davis County together with McCarthy.
