Regenerative Energy® in Tennessee

Silicon Ranch debuted Regenerative Energy agrivoltaics  in Tennessee in 2019 at our 121-acre Providence Solar Farm in Madison County. To fulfill our commitment to being a good steward of the land, we returned the long-time conventional cotton and grain farm to agricultural production with the introduction of 500 regeneratively managed sheep. Regenerative Energy agrivoltaics marries regenerative agriculture with energy production to heal the land and restore biodiversity and clean water supplies—making our communities healthier.

Over the past four years, with the help of local farmers and their flocks of sheep, we have expanded our agrivoltaics platform in the state to nine additional projects, totaling over 800 grazed acres, including our Volkswagen Chattanooga Solar Ranch, our Millington Solar Ranch, and our Pulaski Solar Center. In the same four years, these Tennessee farmers have gained finance-free access to our land, allowing them to grow the size of their sheep flocks, realize new revenue streams, and employ more Tennesseans. Our hooved friends, meanwhile, have naturally fertilized the land and trampled plenty of hay and seeds into the soil, strengthening root networks and restoring the health of the system that removes carbon from the atmosphere, ultimately storing some of that carbon back in the soil where it belongs.

Regenerative grazing is just one of a number of regenerative practices that we implement to heal our land and restore Tennessee ecosystems. At all of our projects, grazed or not, we cultivate a regionally appropriate mix of seeds to promote biodiverse, long-term, deep-rooted perennial vegetation and faster plant growth cycles to improve soil health.
