September 1, 2021 – Clearloop, the only cleantech company working with brands and individuals to build domestic solar farms that both clean up the grid and benefit distressed communities, will celebrate the groundbreaking of its 1-megawatt solar farm in Jackson on Thursday, September 2. This is the first utility-scale solar farm in the United States directly financed by solar offsets. Clearloop’s solar farm will provide enough clean energy to power 200 homes.
Clearloop invites the entire Jackson community to the groundbreaking on Thursday, September 2, 2021 from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM at the site of the future solar project, located at 2469 Technology Center Drive, Jackson, TN 38301. The groundbreaking will celebrate the first-of-its-kind solar project that will generate enough electricity to power 200 homes in West Tennessee over the next 40 years. This is a community event for the whole family including a virtual reality experience, food, ice cream trucks, and a time capsule burial.
“Jackson has seen first-hand how clean energy expansion can be a tool for economic development, creating new jobs, establishing new tax revenue, and making our community more desirable for companies that want access to clean energy,” said Kyle Spurgeon, CEO of the Jackson Chamber. “We’re proud to see companies like Clearloop and the collection of partners financing this solar project investing not only in cleaning up the grid but in the Jackson community.”
Clearloop partners with brands, companies, and individuals to expand access to clean energy and to generate long-term opportunities in economically distressed communities across the United States. Founded in 2019 by three Tennesseans—including former governor Phil Bredesen—Clearloop is shifting the way corporate investments reduce carbon by bringing solar projects to regions of the country with disproportionately carbon-intense electricity generation. After years in government, politics, and business, we fundamentally believe that we cannot wait around for others to act.
