Mississippi Power to Buy $100M Solar Facility’s Electricity


“The Mississippi Public Service Commission on Thursday voted for the $100 million solar farm to be built in Lauderdale County by Silicon Ranch of Nashville, Tennessee. A unit of Atlanta-based Southern Co., Mississippi Power will buy all the power from the facility for 25 years. The 570,000 solar panels will be able to supply 53 megawatts of electricity at peak, enough to power about 8,000 homes.”
