Its nickname is "Project Titan." The biggest solar park in Tennessee will be located in Chattanooga when the $30 million project comes on line next to the Volkswagen plant later this year.

While the 65-acre VW facility will be big, it's just one of an array of solar projects which are or will be producing power in the Chattanooga area. Together, the projects make Hamilton County one of the largest, if not the biggest, generator of the energy statewide.

When VW's 9.58 megawatts of solar come on line and Chattanooga Airport adds another 1.1 megawatts to other installations already operating, the city alone will produce about 13.15 megawatts, or more than 20 percent of the 62.3 megawatts in TVA's seven-state service area.
