About Silicon Ranch

Silicon Ranch Corporation is based in Nashville, Tennessee, and is one of the fastest-growing developers, owners, and operators of solar energy plants in the United States. We benefit from the experience of a management team that has built over 2.5 gigawatts of conventional and renewable generation assets, including the first large-scale solar projects in Tennessee, Georgia, Arkansas, and Mississippi. We take great pride in providing excellent customer service, while developing cost-effective, creative solar energy solutions for a diverse set of customers, including utilities, military and defense facilities, small to large industrial facilities, and commercial businesses.
