Millington is about to be the home of the largest solar power plant in Tennessee thanks to a public and private partnership with a commitment to renewable energy.
The project brings together private Nashville-based renewable energy provider Silicon Ranch Corp. with the U.S. Navy, Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA), Memphis Light, Gas and Water Division and the Millington Industrial Development Board (MIDB), all large public entities with overlapping initiatives, which is no small feat, according to all the parties involved.
All of the stakeholders have Tennessee roots. Principals of Silicon Ranch Corp., founded in 2010, include former Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen; former commissioner of the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development Matt Kisber, and former commissioner of the Tennessee State Department of Revenue, Reagan Fair.
