Energy provider Dominion has acquired two stand-alone solar energy developments in southwest Tennessee with a combined output of 32 MW.

The two projects, dubbed Mulberry Farm and Selmer Farm, are currently in late-stage development by Strata Solar and will produce approximately 16 MW each. The Tennessee Valley Authority will purchase all the power and environmental attributes under its renewable standard offer program.

Construction is expected to start shortly, with both projects slated to achieve commercial operation by the end of the year. Strata Solar will continue to handle engineering, procurement and construction, and the company will manage operations and maintenance once the installations are operational.

Interconnection to the electric grid will take place through facilities owned and operated by Selmer, Tenn.-based Pickwick Electric Cooperative.
