The Tennessee Valley Authority, Meta (formerly Facebook), Jackson Energy Authority and Silicon Ranch have broken ground on a 70-MWAC solar facility in Madison County, Tennessee.
The McKellar Solar Farm will support Meta’s regional operations with renewable energy.
Nashville-based Silicon Ranch will fund, own, operate and maintain the McKellar Solar Farm.
The company expects to invest upwards of $90 million to construct the facility.
Originally announced in August 2020, construction of the facility is expected to be completed before the end of 2022.
