Clearloop in Jackson, Tn

Working together to clean up the grid, one community at a time.

The loftier the goal the bigger the impact.

1 Million Watts

By building 1 million watts of new solar capacity in Jackson, TN—covering 12 acres or the equivalent of 10 football fields—you are helping us reclaim and generate clean energy for communities that need it most.

60 Million lbs CO2

Reclaim 59.6 Million pounds of carbon (CO2). Not only will these projects result in clean energy construction jobs, the investment in infrastructure often results in the biggest tax infusion for a community in generations. 

200 Homes

Generate electricity to power 200 homes over 40 years. We’re intentionally investing so that communities don’t have to make a trade-off between economic investment and their health.

Working together to clean up the grid, one community at a time.

Our first solar project, we’re excited to help expand access to clean energy in our home state by working with companies of all sizes to clean up the electricity grid in Jackson, TN.

Why We’ve Invested in Jackson, TN

Jackson, TN ties the largely rural communities between Memphis and Nashville together and serves as the hub for all commerce, healthcare, and education for the area. The Jackson community is diverse, with nearly half of the population identifying as African American. Though it’s been identified as a Distressed Community by the Economic Innovation Group, the city is already embracing the economic and health benefits of the clean energy economy.

The Clearloop solar project site is located in an industrial area of the county across the road from the Tennessee College of Applied Technology-Jackson which will be a key component in the creation of a local workforce development program for electricians and other trades in the area that will be prepared to join the clean energy economy.

In Jackson specifically, 37 watts reclaim 1 metric ton of carbon (CO2) based on the grid dirtiness. The project, which will guarantee clean energy to the community for the next 40 years, is slated to break ground on September 2, 2021, and generate clean electricity by July 1, 2022.

Our electricity is dirty

Turning on something as simple as a light switch has a more drastic impact in Jackson than in other parts of the country. In Jackson, 1038.60 lbs of carbon (CO2) are currently emitted per Megawatt Hour (MwH) of electricity generated. Compare that to California, where the exact same activity releases 786 lbs of C02 per MegaWatt Hour.  By expanding access to clean energy, we are narrowing this disparity across the country, one community at a time.

The impact of flipping the lights depends on where you live

Currently, a big part of Tennessee’s electricity is generated by fossil fuels, which create pollution and have a negative impact on the environment. By investing in solar capacity and expanding access to clean energy, we can clean up the grid and take advantage of our most abundant resource– the sun! Tennessee is a Sun Belt state, after all. 

Investing in clean energy to boost economic development

The Distressed Communities Index (DCI) examines economic well-being at the zip code level in order to provide a detailed view of the divided landscape of American prosperity. While Jackson is distressed, the city is already embracing the economic and health benefits of the clean energy economy.

The Jackson community is diverse, with nearly half of the population identifying as African American.

50.5% Black or African American; 45.2% white, non-Hispanic; 1.8% Hispanic or Latino
