Origis files EWG notices for two 52-MW solar projects in Mississippi

Two related companies with in-development solar projects in Mississippi on March 30 filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission notices of self-certification of exempt wholesale generator status for each project.

  • MS Solar 3 LLC is developing and will own and operate a 52-MW (nameplate) solar photovoltaic facility and associated interconnection facilities (the MS Solar 3 Facility) in Lamar County, Mississippi. The output of the MS Solar 3 Facility will be sold exclusively to purchasers for resale.
  • MS Solar 2 LLC is developing and will own and operate a 52-MW (nameplate) solar photovoltaic facility and associated interconnection facilities in Lamar County, Mississippi. The output of the MS Solar 2 Facility will also be sold exclusively to purchasers for resale.

A contact for each company listed in the EWG notices is: Samir Verstyn, Secretary, 800 Brickell Ave., Suite 1100, Miami, FL 33131, Phone: (646) 467-3966, samir.verstyn@origisenergy.com.

That is contact information for Origis Energy, which says about itself on its website: “The core business of Origis Energy is the development or acquisition, financing and operation of large-scale solar PV plants across the European Union and in the USA.”

South Mississippi Electric and Mississippi Power have lately been working with Origis on buying power from 52-MW solar projects in Mississippi.
