strata solar

On March 20, our team visited a solar farm run by Strata Solar, a company based in North Carolina that offers “project Development, Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Financing Solutions for any size project – from utility scale solar farms to commercial retailers and residential projects.”

Our visit included a tour of the solar farm and an explanation of how Strata makes solar more competitive and affordable by using a large-scale assembly line model for their business. The farms that Strata installs have a projected 40 year life span and include infrastructure that’s able to be removed at the end of this life span. The company also hires youth that otherwise have trouble finding employment.

Ultimately, we hope to work with Strata Solar in the future as a way to power parts of the Durham Reuse District.
