Camilla Utility Project

Camilla Utility Project

Georgia, GA


Origis chose Trina to meet an accelerated deadline, when the previously selected module supplier could not accelerate delivery.  The Camilla, GA site was developed by Origis Energy to deliver power to Georgia Power under a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA).  The PPA specified that the plant must be complete by a certain date to avoid penalties.  Many module manufacturers could have supplied the project and Origis contracted the best offer from a pricing and product perspective.  

As the project prepared for construction in March, Origis learned there would be timing and supply issues with their chosen module supplier.  At this point, Trina Solar was contacted to see if they could supply the project on short notice.  With the accelerated timeline, increasing costs threatened the project ability to meet financial targets. However, Origis’ senior Lender and bank debt financing partner was supportive of Trina as a supply partner and made the project work out on the financing side. Ultimately, Trina stood behind their product and brand to get the Camilla project built on time under difficult circumstances.
