The Tennessee Valley Authority announced it will soon begin construction of a 1-MW solar facility at the Allen combined-cycle gas-fired site in Memphis.
When the $1.3 million, 3,000-panel project is finished in September, it will be the largest TVA-owned solar project in its service area. The development also features five megawatts of biogas generation.
Currently, TVA has over 400 MW of solar power under contract from other entities.
