Internet Access Possible Due to Renewable Energy

 

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.

The Digital Divide

About 15% of Hoosiers living in areas where access to broadband is a challenge are children.

Purdue University estimates 31% of Hoosiers live in areas where inadequate Internet connectivity make remote work or e-learning a challenge.

Renewables can Help Overcome the Divide

Examples:​

  • $4,000,000 project delivering border-to-border broadband service for Randolph County residents, funded by renewable energy payments

  • Three county project in western Indiana delivering fiber direct-to-home for 75% of the population
