Nashville Starts Going Green

Vanderbilt University will be partnering with Nashville Electric Service and the Tennessee Valley Authority to produce clean energy on a large scale to mitigate Vanderbilt's greenhouse gas emissions.

The 20-year agreement was signed to help reach the goal of having the West End campus be powered and carbon neutral by the middle of the century. The energy will be produced by a solar farm in Bedford County run by Nashville based solar company Silicon Ranch.

The university is the first large customer to partner with the TVA on this type of green energy production and is the first agreement to come under the TVA's new Green Invest program.

The solar farm is slated to come online in late 2022. It will supply up to 35 megawatts of clean, renewable energy, offsetting close to 70% of the university's greenhouse gas emissions from purchased power. This same amount of electricity could power up to 5,000 homes in the Nashville area for one year, so this is a significant amount of energy.

The Nashville Area is going green, and if you want to get on the bandwagon, start with a complete LED lighting retrofit and be ready for the solar revolution. This is a cost-effective way to begin cutting your power usage and lowering your electric bills as well as contributing to a cleaner and greener environment and will help achieve goals of Net Zero and Net Positive carbon goals for the Tennessee area.

Victory Lights was the best choice we could have made for retro fitting with LED in the office building.  We received insightful consultation from their project leader, and are very appreciative of the high level of service they provided from start to finish.  The new lights that they helped us select are excellent quality, and look wonderful in the offices we lease.  We are excited about the beautiful, clean, and quiet light as well as the reduced energy/maintenance cost that we are experiencing.  It was a pleasure doing business with Victory Lights.

Since we have changed all our light bulbs in the common area of this 3 story, 169 apartment retirement community, we have not changed one single light bulb.

In the long haul, it saved us an enormous amount of money and time.

Chad has been very helpful with our LED retrofit project. He and his staff have not only been informative but have made all our projects hassle free.

Marc M., Chief Building Engineer, Healthcare Trust of America

The LED retro fit was a huge task, due to ceilings being 18' with a finished drywall ceiling.  Victory went to great efforts in finding the right lights resulting the least amount of remodel/tear out of old lights,while ensuring the accurate lighting needed for our jewelry showroom.  We are delighted to report that our year-to-date utility bill is down 23%.  Victory was wonderful to work with and the staff was amazing.  

Anfesa M., Anfesa's Jewelers

Victory Lights was instrumental in guiding us through the process of retrofitting the existing 20,000 sf Building with LED lighting to reduce our energy cost and maintenance cost.  This included working to ensure we received the best possible rebate available from Progress Energy.  Chad was extremely knowledgeable and patient through the entire process.
