We need to protect local environmental quality and combat global climate change
  • Solar energy can displace fossil-fueled power and avoid emissions that harm air quality and contribute to climate change.
  • Indiana currently gets only 7% of its electricity from clean, renewable resources like solar, wind and hydropower.
The solar farm will provide economic benefits to Shelby County communities
  • Added tax revenue for school, town and county.
  • Construction jobs and added commerce for local businesses.
  • Stabilized long-term electricity prices.
  • Provide significant revenue to local farming businesses to enable them to maintain ownership of their land. Power produced by the project will allow for greater flexibility by utilities in the forecasting of future power generation purchases.
Increased power supply in Shelby County can boost electric system reliability
  • Located at a vital section of the electric grid.
  • Grid-connected solar helps power system operators address high-demand periods.
