Solar Farms Create Economic Growth for DeKalb County

Solar energy farms bring millions of dollars of private investment and tax revenue to the counties and communities that host them.  That’s money that can be used for:

  • High-speed internet

  • Local Economic development

  • Funding for rural schools

 

The proposed solar farm uses only a fraction of land to deliver these benefits to the entire county.  And 78% of Hoosiers agree that farmers should be able to develop their land as they see fit, including for renewable energy projects.

Companies like Subaru, Cummins, Amazon, Google, Facebook, Salesforce and more view states with access to renewables as a desirable place to do business.  These companies will invest in the local communities and provide jobs and opportunities for people today and for our children.

DeKalb County needs to get on the renewable energy bandwagon or risk getting left behind!

Access to Broadband

"Investments from renewable energy are actually bringing us reliable high-speed broadband, among other benefits. We couldn’t have afforded any of it if we hadn’t embraced renewable energy."

- Paul Jackson, Director of Economic Development in Benton County

Economic Development for Rural Communities

"What’s going to keep rural America alive? How economically are you going to do that? Renewable energy is on every list. That’s really going to give the resources, the financial resources, to help a community thrive."


- Ceann Bales, Executive Director Randolph Community and Economic Development Corporation

Funding for Rural Schools

"Renewables provide a tax base for our schools. It is a huge win-win. You can use the money from renewables for technology, for bus repairs and HVAC repairs. That frees up the cash for the teachers out of the general budget."

Tipton County Farmer

Tax revenue from solar farms support our communities, while making Indiana an attractive state for businesses who want to use cleaner energy. Combined, these benefits offer a better future for our children.
