A unique partnership making an impact.

2.8 million watts of new solar generation

Clearloop has launched a new 2.8 megawatts (MWdc) solar project, in partnership with Intuit, REI, and local power companies.

162 million pounds of carbon (CO2)

The project will prevent over 162 million pounds of carbon (CO2) from entering the atmosphere. Not only will this project result in clean energy construction jobs, the investment in infrastructure will result in a large tax infusion for the community.

400 homes

The project will generate enough renewable, cost-effective energy to power approximately 400 homes annually.

The White Pine Solar Project at work

Watch us move the needle towards producing clean energy in White Pine! As our project generates solar energy, it will help prevent more than 162 million pounds of carbon from entering the atmosphere.

White Pine, Tennessee Solar Farm

Splitting the line between Jefferson and Hamblen counties and a part of the Morristown metropolitan area, White Pine is an environmentally rich, picturesque town of just under 3,000. Transportation and manufacturing are the lifeblood of the community, in addition to its proximity to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the University of Tennessee.

Clearloop is excited to collaborate with Intuit, a global software company based in Mountain View, California and REI, an outdoor adventure brand based in Washington State, to bring a new solar project to White Pine. On track for completion in winter 2023, the solar project commissioned by Clearloop will reclaim approximately 162 million pounds of carbon from the electric grid and create workforce development opportunities in the region.

As is the case with all Clearloop projects, the White Pine Solar Farm was developed and is owned and operated by its parent Silicon Ranch for the lifetime of the project. Through this disciplined and community-focused approach, Clearloop will maintain a long-term vested interest in the community and surrounding region. The White Pine Solar Farm achieved commercial operations at the end of 2023.

Clearloop is proud to partner with local power companies and community leaders in this new clean energy project and is committed to Making Solar Do More® in beautiful White Pine.

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
