Mississippi Power 50 MW Hattiesburg Project Goes Online
The sun was burning bright Friday morning as dozens of officials cut the ribbon on Hattiesburg's new solar facility, a partnership between Mississippi Power Co. and Silicon Ranch.
The site, located on 450 acres off U.S. 49 South, will generate enough electricity annually to power 6,500 houses.
The Hattiesburg facility was built and will be operated by Silicon Ranch in partnership with Mississippi Power. Strata Solar constructed the facility, which provided around 350 mostly local jobs during construction.
