Solar Farm

Property tax uncertainty could drive away some companies looking to build solar farms in Indiana. That’s according to a presentation for the 21st Century Energy Policy Development Task Force on Thursday.

Three large solar farms proposed for southern Indiana are expected to double the state’s solar capacity. Capital Dynamics and Tenaska hope to build projects in Pike, Gibson, and Knox counties adding 500 megawatts of solar.

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.
