BROOKHAVEN — Entergy Mississippi officials have announced the completion of its Brookhaven solar station.
The Daily Leader reports Entergy Customer Accounts Manager Bill Howard recently said that the Bright Future Solar Project Brookhaven station was complete and online and producing electricity. A dedication ceremony will be held April 14.
The station will be used to harness the sun’s energy to help fuel the state’s power gird.
Entergy received permission from the Mississippi Public Service Commission to install three 500,000-watt solar panel farms in the state in December 2014.
Brookhaven was selected as one of the sites where the company will pilot the project. The other locations are Jackson and DeSoto County.
Each site will test different methods and provide data for Entergy on how varying conditions and regions affect energy output.
