The Tennessee Valley Authority is bringing solar power to the Bluff City. 

The one megawatt facility will be the largest TVA-owned solar project and is located along Riverside Road near the Allen Gas Plant. 

The $1.3 million project features more than 3,000 solar panels. 

TVA expects to invest about $8 billion to solar power in the next 20 years. 

Construction is underway and the plant should be producing power by September 2017.
