Solar gaining power in Tennessee
Memphis connections contribute to rapid growth
Memphis Business Journal


Quote:
A new report from the Tennessee Solar Institute reveals stats that are becoming obvious: The solar industry is big business in the state, especially in West Tennessee. “The Tennessee Solar Value Chain,” which estimates the growth of solar usage, manufacturing and employment in the state, says that in the last four years, Tennessee has grown its solar usage from one tenth of a megawatt in 2008 to 27 megawatts in 2012. One megawatt of electricity is enough to power 1,000 houses.

I am impressed with this operation as it continues further. CEO Charles Wang was promising $1 billion of investment into the production of electric cars in metro Memphis. He has so far delivered on conversion of a large facility in Horn Lake, MS and is currently building a $75 million facility in Tunica, MS.

West Memphis wins $11 million grant for rail, port expansion
Memphis Business Journal


Quote:
The funds will jump start the expansion of the West Memphis Intermodal project, which will increase the industrial and bulk shipping capabilities of the area. Specifically, the $10.9 million will strengthen current rail to allow for heavier cargo loads and extend the existing rail spur by approximately 13,500 feet to the base of the St. Francis Levee. This would allow access to the Port of West Memphis by truck and conveyor and provide for a multimodal transload facility to support expanded export cargo of bulk commodities.

40,000 paying visitors a year & looking to double it in 5 years, I'm impressed. Great tourist attraction for the Tupelo Micropolitan Area population: 150,000 and apprx. 35 miles from the Memphis MSA down the soon-to-be designated Interstate 22.

$4.3M Expansion About Complete at Elvis Museum
AP/ Memphis Daily News


Quote:
The expansion includes a 120-seat theater where fans can watch films and live performances in a 120-seat theater and an outdoor amphitheater with seating for 75. Rock seats have been installed and will be planted with sod to accommodate people with their own chairs. The theater and other additions are part of phase one of the expansion, which also includes last fall's tripling of on-site parking capacity... The goal of the expansion is to double the visitor count to the birthplace during the next five years. It had about 40,000 paying visitors last year, according to the Tupelo Convention and Visitors Bureau. Phase two includes a larger outdoor amphitheater for at least 700 people and improvements to the overlook.
