On March 5 Nashville Electric Service (NES) and LightWave Solar broke ground on Nashville’s first community solar project. It will be the largest solar system in Davidson County, located on an old landfill site off I-65 behind Skyline Medical Center in Madison.

The 2MW Music City Solar project will consist of 17,020 solar panels. NES customers can invest in one or more panels to see a solar credit on their monthly electric bills.
