Solar will Help
Howard County Grow

Millions of dollars in benefits from less than 3% of county farmland (current proposed projects combined)

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.

One potential project in Howard County, the Emerald Green Solar Project, will deliver big investment and economic growth to the county:

  • More than $150 million in investment

  • $30 million of additional property tax payments.  Money that can be used to: ​

    • Provide broadband internet

    • Support first responders

    • Invest in schools
