Chickasaw Electric Cooperative has announced the completion of system improvements between the cooperative’s Dancyville substation and the West Tennessee Solar Farm in Haywood County.
The upgraded line was energized on Dec. 14 and the cooperative is ready to receive power from the 4.5 MW solar farm. The completion comes 11 weeks ahead of schedule.
Energy produced by the West Tennessee Solar Farm will travel across nine miles of distribution line to Chickasaw Electric Cooperative’s Dancyville substation where TVA will receive the energy and use it to meet the power needs of the Tennessee Valley, according to a news release from the state Department of Economic and Community Development.
