West Tennessee Solar Farm
Haywood County, TN

ICT Is providing engineering planning and design for the West Tennessee Solar Farm, a 5 MW power generation facility located on 30 acres in Haywood County, TN. This project is part of Governor Phil Bredesen’s Volunteer State Solar Initiative, and one of the largest solar installations in the Southeast.

Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development contracted with the University of Tennessee to oversee planning, operation and management of the West Tennessee Solar Farm. The Farm will consist of over 20,000 high efficiency silicon-based photovoltaic modules in an initial 5 MW configuration, expected to produce more than 7,000 MW hours of electricity annually. The ultimate build-out is planned and the interconnect designed for 10 MW DC output.

ICT is providing complete electrical design of the interface of the inverters to the interconnect to the AC power grid as well as on-site power, system communications and grounding systems.
