Huntsville AL: Alabama’s largest solar farm to power Facebook in Huntsville
TVA will build Alabama’s largest solar energy installation in Colbert County, a clean energy initiative that will help power the Facebook data center under construction in Huntsville.
TVA on Friday announced it has agreed with two solar developers to build two installations in Alabama and Tennessee, which together will support the data center with 100 percent renewable energy. Together, the two installations will generate 377 megawatts of electricity, TVA said.
The Colbert County facility will produce 227 megawatts – almost three times the production of the state’s current largest solar farm near LaFayette in east Alabama.
