The Tennessee Valley Authority powers nearly 10 million people in seven states in the southeastern United States. The government agency and clean energy company NextEra Energy was selected to build a solar farm used by Facebook. The terms and timetable for the construction have not yet been announced.

Facebook's related statement shows that the First Solar project in Colport, Alabama will provide 227 megawatts of electricity, and the NextEra project in Lincolnshire, Tennessee, will provide 150 megawatts of electricity.

Facebook hopes that all data centers and offices will use renewable energy by 2020. The company said that the cooperation with the Tennessee Valley Authority will allow the company's local facilities to achieve this goal.
