Piney Woods Solar is leading the way for solar energy in Mississippi.
Piney Woods School, a historically African-American boarding school for grades 9-12, has a 108-year history of educational excellence and is now redesigning its campus and educational approach for the 21st century. Piney Woods Solar will deploy a 1MW solar system on campus as a centerpiece of the school’s sustainability work and 21st century vision. The project will be integrated into the school’s 500-acre sustainable farm and serve as a demonstration project for all of rural Mississippi of the benefits of solar energy.
A new net-metering policy in Mississippi makes this 1MW behind the meter project financially viable will be the largest net-metering project in the Entergy distribution territory.
