Silicon Ranch Corp. has partnered with LightWave Solar Electric to build a 1 MW PV array in Memphis, Tenn.
The installation calls for 4,160 PV modules from Sharp, mounted on single-axis trackers. Construction began in late December, and the project is slated for completion in mid-April. LightWave Solar provided engineering support and design, as well as procurement and construction, and will maintain the system for 10 years.
The companies have entered into an agreement with the Tennessee Valley Authority to sell back the energy produced by the array for use by local customers.
