Coming Soon: Local Contractor and Job Fair!
Old Jackson Solar project construction is expected to begin in the summer of 2019 and operations will begin in the summer of 2020. Once selected, we will announce the general contractor overseeing project construction and host a local job fair this spring.
If you have a business that is interested in supplying products or services, or if you are an individual interested in applying for open positions, you may submit your information through the Vendor & Employment Form. The information provided will be shared with the general contractor once selected, and we will notify you about the job fair when it is scheduled.
There will be minimal site preparation and clearing prior to beginning major construction activities. For the entire project site, less than 5 acres is expected to be graded. Steel posts will be driven into the ground with minimal force and without concrete foundations to minimize their impact.
Other construction activities will include installation of the panels and construction of the substation and transmission line connecting the site to the electrical grid.
At the end of the project’s life of 35 to 40 years, the steel posts and all other materials will be removed, and the land will be restored to its original condition.
