Millington Solar Farm

Shelby County, Tennessee

On December 15, 2017, TVA issued a final environmental assessment (EA) and finding of no significant impact for its proposed purchase of power from SR Millington’s proposed 53-megawatt Millington Solar Facility in Shelby County, Tennessee. The photovoltaic solar generating facility, currently scheduled for completion in late 2018, would occupy approximately 390 acres of a 438-acre tract within the city limits of Millington, Tennessee, approximately 2 miles northeast of the city center. The Millington Solar Facility would be connected to the TVA electrical transmission network via a new on-site substation and a new TVA 161-kilovolt (kV) transmission line (called the Shelby-Millington Solar 161-kV Transmission Line). Additional information regarding the proposed transmission line is available.

The project would also provide energy security to the adjacent Naval Support Activity (NSA) Mid-South facility via a new 12.47-kV distribution line that would be paid for and constructed by SR Millington, LLC to connect from the new on-site substation to the NSA Mid-South facility network.

The EA evaluates the anticipated environmental impacts of the construction and operation of the solar generating facility and associated electrical connections.
