SR Canadaville Solar Facility

Fayette County, Tennessee

The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) is preparing an Environmental Assessment (EA) associated with a proposed SR Canadaville Solar Facility. The EA has been prepared to inform TVA decisionmakers and the public about the environmental consequences of the proposed action. 

TVA has entered into a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with SR Canadaville, LLC (SR Canadaville), a wholly owned subsidiary of Silicon Ranch Corporation in Fayette County, Tennessee. The long-term PPA would provide for TVA’s purchase of electric power generated by the solar photovoltaic facility for 20 years.

To fulfill the PPA, SR Canadaville plans to develop a solar PV facility, on a 223-acre property located approximately 0.5 miles southeast of the intersection of SR-196/Chulahoma Road and SR-193/Macon, Fayette County, Tennessee. While design of the facility is in the process of being finalized, the conceptual plan includes monofacial solar modules comprised of approximately 48,702 individual panels arranged over roughly 157 acres.  The proposed facility would have an alternating current generating capacity of 16 megawatts and would connect to a new Canadaville 13-kilovolt (kV) solar generation substation proposed to be constructed by Chickasaw Electric Cooperative (CEC) on the project site. It would provide 16 megawatts (MW) of generation at the point of interconnection from the project site to the existing Canadaville, Tennesse, 161- kVSubstation northwest of the project site.  

Submitting Comments

Comments were collected from the public, state, local, and federal stakeholders from April 1, 2022 to May 2, 2022.  All comments will be considered in preparation of the final EA which is expected in summer 2022.  The final EA will be available on this webpage.
