Gibson County Grows with Solar

The construction of the Gibson Solar Project is not funded by taxpayers, but by private companies making investments in solar energy.  The project will deliver more than $249 million in capital investment, and $50 million in additional property tax payments to the county over its lifetime.

Millions of dollars in benefits from less than 1% of county farmland

The Gibson Solar Project delivers big investment and economic growth to the county:

  • $249 million in capital investment

  • $50 million in property taxes to the county over its lifetime. Money that can be used: 

    • To invest in schools

    • Upgrade infrastructure

    • Provide broadband internet

    • Support first responders

    • And much more
