Solar - Our New Cash Crop

You plant it once, but it can harvest energy and money for years - and that money can fund better internet, our schools and more benefits for all of us.

Solar farms offer Hoosier communities a chance to diversify and grow their local economies.

78% of Hoosiers agree that farmers have the right to choose what they want to do with their land, including develop renewable energy.

Solar farms are investments from private companies that pay millions to our communities with property taxes.

  • The Mammoth and Moss Creek Solar farms will be developed over three years, with a $1.3 billion private investment

  • Moss Creek Solar means more than $20 million in additional tax revenue

  • Together, these projects pay more than $40 million in economic development payments to Pulaski County

 

Revenue from solar farms can be used for:

  • Access to highspeed internet

  • School improvements

  • Road repair

  • Equipment for first responders

 

Don’t let Pulaski County be left behind!  Write your local county officials today and tell them to support the Moss Creek and Mammoth Solar Farms!

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

Tom McKinney-black-white.png

"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."

- Tom McKinney

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.
