Millington Solar Farm

Shelby County, Tennessee

TVA has tentatively approved an agreement to purchase the electricity generated by SR Millington’s proposed 53-megawatt Millington Solar Facility for up to 20 years, pending the outcome of the assessment. The photovoltaic solar generating facility, currently scheduled for completion in late 2018, would occupy approximately 390 acres of a 438-acre tract within the city limits of Millington, Tennessee, approximately 2 miles northeast of the city center. The Millington Solar Facility would be connected to the TVA electrical transmission network via a new on-site substation and a new TVA 161-kilovolt (kV) transmission line (called the Shelby-Millington Solar 161-kV Transmission Line). Additional information regarding the proposed transmission line is available.

The proposed project would also provide energy security to the adjacent Naval Support Activity (NSA) Mid-South facility via a new 12.47-kV distribution line that would be paid for and constructed by SR Millington, LLC to connect from the new on-site substation to the NSA Mid-South facility network. The draft Environmental Assessment evaluates the anticipated environmental impacts of the construction and operation of the solar generating facility and associated electrical connections.
