State&#8217;s biggest solar farm set

<strong>Strata Solar </strong>is working with the <strong>Tennessee Valley Authority </strong>and <strong>Pickwick Electric Cooperative</strong> to develop the two largest solar energy installations in the state near Selmer, Tenn. The 20-megawatt solar farms will generate more than twice the output of the 33-acre solar farm at the Volkswagen plant in Chattanooga, currently Tennessee&#8217;s biggest solar array. The new farm in Selmer will include 160,000 solar panels installed on more than 300 acres.

&#8220;We are thrilled to be working with TVA and PEC on these pioneering solar projects,&#8221; said <strong>Markus Wilhelm, </strong>founder and CEO of Strata Solar.
