Solar Energy

Solar Program

  • Hoosier Energy’s solar program consists of 10 1-megawatt solar arrays placed along highly visible roadways across member service territories
  • Collectively, the solar sites will provide approximately 20,000,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of energy annually for the 300,000 consumers served by Hoosier Energy’s 18-member distribution cooperatives

Key Goal

  • Learn how this variable energy resource integrates onto the grid and how solar might offset the need for other more costly energy resources during periods of high demand
  • Once collected, this information will help member distribution systems give advice to member consumers on the operational issues, costs, and benefits of solar as a renewable energy resource
