During its April 14 Open Docket Meeting held via telephone, the Mississippi Public Service
Commission voted unanimously to approve the Sunflower County Solar Project – a 1,000-acre Solar Farm producing 100 megawatt of renewable energy in the Mississippi Delta.
Entergy Mississippi and solar-developer, Recurrent Energy, are partnering to bring the largest utility-owned solar farm in the state by the end of 2022. The project will provide clean energy and significant economic impact to Sunflower County and surrounding areas.
“I’m excited to see this project move forward and the benefits it will bring to Entergy customers,” Chairman Dane Maxwell said. “The benefit of fuel diversity accompanied with the economic impact it will have on Sunflower County and surrounding area make this project a great deal for the Mississippi Delta and the rest of the state as well.”
Economic impacts will be in the form of 400+ total direct, indirect and induced jobs as a result of construction and the completion of this project.
