Jackson Solar Project

Madison County, Tennessee

TVA is proposing to enter into a power purchase agreement (PPA) with SR Jackson, LLC (SR Jackson), the facility-specific entity affiliated with Silicon Ranch Corporation (SRC), to purchase the electric power generated by a proposed solar photovoltaic (PV) facility. The proposed solar facility would be constructed and operated by SR Jackson and would have direct current (DC) generating capacity of 2 megawatts (MW).  The PPA would be executed through TVA’s Distributed Solar Solutions (DSS) program, under which TVA agrees to purchase qualifying renewable energy at set prices for a 20-year period.

The proposed solar facility would occupy approximately a 44 acre site, located approximately 7 miles west of downtown Jackson. The project would consist of multiple parallel rows of PV panels on single-axis tracking structures, DC to alternating current (AC) inverters, and one transformer. It would connect to the existing Jackson Energy Authority (JEA)-owned overhead 12.47-kilovolt (kV) power line along the southern boundary of the project site. This project is being developed to help support JEA customer goals for renewable energy.

On December 18 16, 2018, TVA released a draft environmental assessment (EA) of the proposed solar project for public comment.  The comment period closed on January 22, 2019.  TVA is currently reviewing the comments received during the comment period and will incorporate them into the final assessment.
