On August 1, 2022, the 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 Shelby County, Tennessee.
TVA has entered into a PPA with SR Millington II, LLC (SR Millington II), a wholly owned subsidiary of Silicon Ranch Corporation in Shelby 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 Millington II plans to develop a solar PV facility, east of Bethuel Road, west of Big Creek Drainage Canal, south of Kerrville-Rosemark Road, and north of Millington Arlington Road. While design of the facility is in the process of being finalized, the conceptual plan includes monofacial solar modules comprised of approximately 227,682 individual panels arranged over roughly 957 acres. The proposed facility would have an alternating current generating capacity of 74.9 megawatts and would tap the existing Millington Solar, TN 161-kilovolt (kV) substation tap line on the Shelby – Drummonds 161-kV transmission line.
