The Tennessee Valley Authority announced that it is developing the two largest solar energy installations in the Tennessee Valley near Selmer in McNairy County, Tenn.
The TVA has contracted with Strata Solar to build and maintain two 20-megawatt solar farms in Selmer.
The TVA says that he two installations could generate enough electricity in one year to power 4,000 average homes.
“This project will add a tremendous amount of solar power to our already strong renewable lineup,” said Patty West, TVA director of Renewable Energy Programs. “Because TVA is purchasing the output at market rates, the electricity will also be among our cheapest solar power, moving us toward our vision of being a national leader in providing low-cost and cleaner energy.”
