Pearl River

Project Overview

Pearl River Solar Park is located in the heart of Mississippi in a rural area primarily used as timber land. The project is close to the Bienville National Forest, historic Natchez Trace Trail, Ross Barnett Reservoir, and the Pearl River which flows into the reservoir. Pearl River is one of the largest solar parks by generation capacity in the state of Mississippi.

Energy Output

Pearl River Solar Park will have an installed capacity of 175 megawatts (MW). Pearl River's generation will be equivalent to the consumption of more than 26,000 Mississippi homes.

Pearl River Solar Park will yield significant economic benefits to the community in the form of payments to landowners, local spending, and annual community investment.

Pearl River will disperse millions in cumulative payments to local governments through the life of the project. $50+ million in taxes will be paid to support local schools and community services. Hundreds of construction jobs will be created as well as approximately 2 permanent jobs.

Pearl River will save more than 222 million gallons of water each year and displaces carbon emissions from fossil fuel power plants, a major contributor to climate change. Solar energy also enhances air quality by helping to mitigate the health effects of harmful air pollutants produced from fossil fuel power plants.



Pearl River Solar Park would be compatible with other land uses and would provide a stable form of income to local landowners. Millions of dollars would be paid to the solar park’s landowners through the life of the project. These supportive landowners participate in long-term land agreements.

Solar Panels

Pearl River Solar Park will consist of approximately 400,000 monofacial and bifacial tracking photovoltaic panels. The project will be sited on about 1750 acres. Photovoltaic solar cells have no moving parts and convert sunlight directly into electricity via the photoelectric effect. This direct-current electricity is then collected, transformed into alternating-current, and finally enters the electrical grid through a substation after being converted to the proper voltage.
