Solar Frontier Publishes Informative Data Sheet on Indiana’s Pastime and McDonald Solar Projects
August 24, 2016
Back in July, we shared a press release published by one of our development partners, Solar Frontier, regarding the completion of two of our solar projects now online in Terra Haute and Brazil, Indiana. These projects are currently delivering 14 MW of clean energy to their surrounding communities, providing an excellent example of the many ways local solar farm development helps communities thrive.
For more details regarding the projects and their benefits to the communities in which they are located, we now also encourage you to review Solar Frontier’s project data sheet, currently available as a downloadable PDF here: Indiana Utility Scale Solar Project.
Statistics And Economic Benefit
The information provided in these documents include project statistics, economic impact and development partnership descriptions. Here are some of the highlights:
- The two projects are expected to reduce carbon emissions by 14,933 tons per year, which represents the equivalent emissions offset of 6,222 trees.
- The Terra Haute project employed approximately 80 people during its construction.
- The solar farms are built on pre-existing farmland—a land use strategy that can give consistently farmed land time to rejuvenate, while still being profitable.
- The solar farms provide nearly 10% of the state’s installed solar capacity via 20-year power purchase agreements with Duke Energy.
Solar Frontier has also produced and shared a short video showing footage of their installed panels on a beautiful day. See it here:
