Solar Array

Vectren eyes Spencer County for solar array

Mar 13, 2018

Vectren has selected a site in Spencer County for a 50-megawatt solar farm. 

In a news release, the Evansville-based utility company announced it has selected First Solar Incorporated to build the solar array in Troy.

Vectren said the array will be situated on about 300 acres and will consist of about 150,000 solar panels.

The array will be mounted on a single-axis tracking system, which enables the panels to automatically pivot to enhance energy generation as the sun’s rays move across the surface of the Earth.
