LIMESTONE COUNTY, Ala. – The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) wants to hear what residents think of a proposed purchase agreement of a solar power facility near their Ardmore substation.

The plant would be east of Mooresville Road, occupying 140 acres of a 155-acre parcel. It would be built and operated by Cumberland Land Holdings LLC. Pending the outcome of their assessment, TVA would purchase electricity from the 20-megawatt facility for two decades.

It’s slated for a late 2018 completion.

TVA officials say comments received, including names and addresses, will become part of the project administrative record and will be available for public inspection.
