Solar Projects provide funding for schools, broadband and more.

Local solar energy projects like Brickyard Solar can help provide a better future for our children and grandchildren.  The Brickyard Solar Project will deliver millions in investments and tax revenue that can go to strengthen our schools, provide highspeed internet and make Indiana a more attractive state for business. 

The Brickyard Solar project will deliver:

  • $210  million investment

  • $50 million in property tax payments to Boone County over the life of the project.  Money that can be used: 

    • To invest in schools

    • Upgrade infrastructure

    • Provide broadband internet

    • Support first responders

    • And much more

Rural economic development experts from across the state support new solar projects.
 
They create local jobs, make investments directly into our rural communities and help protect our agricultural heritage and preserve farmland.

Because of payments made from solar and other renewable energy projects, some rural communities are able to provide highspeed internet access in places where there is none today.  This high speed access is vital as schools and businesses increasingly rely heavily on remote learning and work from home.

Large employers like Google, Facebook and Amazon are looking to locate in states with access to renewables, and Indiana large employers like Walmart, Cummins, Eli Lilly, General Motors and Best Buy have all expressed public support for access to renewable energy.
