Silicon Ranch to build solar field in Arkansas

Nashville-based Silicon Ranch Corp., the solar energy venture chaired by former Gov. Phil Bredsen and run by former state commissioners Matt Kisber and Reagan Farr, has struck a deal with aerospace and defense products manufacturer Aerojet Rocketdyne and two utilities to build a 12-megawatt installation near Aerojet's plant in Camden, Arkansas.

The 100-acre project, which will primarily feed Aerojet's rocket motor and warhead manufacturing operations in Camden, is expected to be up and running late this year.

"We are excited to partner with Aerojet Rocketdyne in developing the first, large-scale solar project in Arkansas," said Matt Kisber, president and CEO of Silicon Ranch. "This would not be possible without the participation and support of AECC and OECC. We believe this clean-energy investment will spur positive economic, environmental and social advantages for the region."
