Tennessee’s largest solar park under construction

Phoenix Solar is installing over 33,000 PV modules at Volkswagon’s plant in Chattanooga in Tennessee, US.

The ground-mounted project, which costs in the region of US$30 million, is said to be Tennessee’s largest solar park when complete.
The plant will have a total capacity of 9.58MW and is being built on 65 acres of land. Electricity generated from the PV system will be fed directly into the Chattanooga Volkswagon plant and is expected to meet 12.5% of the plant’s energy demands. Citing Thilo Brockhaus, Volkswagon’s manager of the plant construction, WDEF revealed that the solar array would produce 13.1GWh of electricity on an annual basis.

The PV system is expected to begin supplying power to the Chattanooga plant this autumn.
