Bear Poplar Solar
3.695 MW AC Solar Farm | Mt. Ulla, NC
O2 emc is currently developing Bear Poplar Solar, a 3.695 MW AC (5.77 MW DC) solar farm located in Mt. Ulla, Rowan County, NC.
Local Economic Benefits
Bear Poplar Solar will increase the Rowan County Tax Base by over $3 million over the expected 30-year life of the project.
We strive to hire all local residents for the construction of the project, which is expected to create over 100 jobs during the construction phase.
The project will be set back from the road, and the equipment will not be more than 12 feet high. Solar farms produce no emissions, noise, or smell. Because there will be no impermeable surfaces on the site, equipment can be removed after the 30-year life of the solar farm and the land can remain in agriculture during operation.
