The launch of the green power program began on April 20 with the dedication of the solar panel array at the headquarters building of Bridges, a youth leadership training organization. The Bridges building is the only structure in Memphis to generate solar power under the Green Power Switch Generation Partners program. The panels use sunlight to produce electricity, which is added to the TVA power grid.
