Solar power coming to Entergy Mississippi

By the end of August, solar power should be part of Entergy Mississippi’s electricity-generation repertoire.

The utility broke ground Tuesday on one of three solar projects it plans in Jackson, Senatobia and Brookhaven as part of its $4.5 million Bright Future Plan.

Between now and when they start producing electricity, Entergy will install 3,744 solar panels made at Stion Corp.’s facility in Hattiesburg. The panels will occupy a field adjacent to Entergy’s Hinds Generating Facility in Jackson.
