The solar park is expected to be operational in 2022 and is anticipated tol be the largest solar array in the state. The companies say it will produce enough electricity to power approximately 37,000 households.

This commitment by Hoosier Energy, a generation and transmission cooperative, will benefit 18-consumer owned electric cooperatives in central and southern Indiana and southeast Illinois that serve more than 300,000 homes, farms, and businesses. Under the PPA, Hoosier Energy will receive all energy from the solar park for 20 years.

“The Riverstart Solar Park will provide an economical source of renewable energy for the next two decades and is a great fit for our members’ long-term needs,” noted Hoosier Energy CEO Steve Smith.”

To date, EDPR has more than 800 MW of operational wind in Indiana and will have another 200 MW wind farm online by the end of 2018 in Benton County.
