On January 6, 2021, Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) issued a final Environmental Assessment (EA) and finding of no significant impact for its proposed power purchase agreement (PPA) with a solar generating facility in Obion County, Tennessee.
The Skyhawk Solar Facility would be constructed and operated by TN Solar and include up to approximately 100 megawatts of alternating current (AC) generating capacity. Additionally, TVA would install a new permanent switching station and perform structural upgrades along its existing 16-mile Weakley to Union City 161-kilovolt transmission line (TL). The proposed Solar Facility would occupy approximately 705 acres consisting of five individual parcels of predominantly agricultural land. The Project Site is approximately 3.5 miles southeast of Union City, Tennessee.
The EA evaluates the anticipated environmental impacts of the construction and operation of the solar generating facility and associated electrical connections and can be found at the link below.
