A Massachusetts energy company and officials from Jenkins County and the city of Millen on Friday put an additional 28-megawatts of electricity into the power grid from a 233-acre solar array built on a former dairy farm. The $45 million project, developed by Boston-based Citizens Energy Corp., is one of the largest investments in the county in recent years. About 250 construction jobs were created by the project. Known as the Old Midville Solar Project, the utility-scale array is expected to add $250,000 annually to county tax revenues.
