Pine Gate Renewables energized its Peony solar project in Orangeburg County, South Carolina, last week. Peony is a 57-MW site spanning 334 acres.

Project partner NARENCO helped install the 175,000 tracker panels on the site. The site features DuraTrack HZ v3 single-axis solar trackers by Array Technologies, mechanically installed by RPCS, Array’s trusted partner. The trackers keep the modules following the sun on its course throughout the day, ensuring up to a 20 to 25% increase in energy production over fixed-tilt systems.

“The efforts of all parties allowed us to deliver a high-quality project that will generate decades of clean power to South Carolina,” says Andy Giraldo, president of EPC at NARENCO.

“It was a real pleasure supporting NARENCOon this project,” said Alex Smith, RPCS chief sales officer. “Peony was a very well executed project and all the great planning, communication and collaboration with NARENCO leading up to the build came together to ensure a smooth installation.”

RPCS’s latest milestone is completing over 550 MW for over 260 solar energy projects throughout 27 different U.S. states and Canada.

“We are very proud of the outcome and thankful for the contributions from the teams at PGR and NARENCO,” said Chris Dunbar, CCO at Pine Gate Renewables. “We anticipate this project being a model for our future efforts in South Carolina.”
