Ground broken for solar energy facility in Hattiesburg

Mississippi Power Co. and Silicon Ranch Corp. are partnering to build the $100 million, 50 megawatt solar farm, which is expected to generate enough electricity to supply power to about 6,500 homes…

…The project, which will be located near Timberton, is expected to generate around 400 jobs during construction. It will sit on approximately 450 acres and feature more than 600,000 solar panels that will produce more than 100 million kilowatt-hours annually.

“We will be hiring the vast majority of this figure from the local labor force,” Kisber said.
