Utility-scale solar projects brighten Alabama’s tech recruitment efforts

Massive new utility-scale solar farm projects are poised to dramatically expand Alabama’s solar power capacity as major technology companies make their first significant investments in the state.

In the last three months alone, the Tennessee Valley Authority has announced plans for large solar installations in North Alabama tied to data centers being constructed by Google in Jackson County and Facebook in Huntsville.

The new projects build on solar capacity in Alabama that only recently came on line.

Alabama Power and its partners developed a $140 million solar installation in Chambers County that opened in late 2017 and is providing renewable energy for retailer Walmart’s ambitious sustainability plan.
