Property Tax Revenue from Renewable Energy Projects Helps Fund Schools

 

Local wind and solar projects pay millions of dollars in property tax revenue to the counties where they are located.  That's extra revenue that can be used to help fund local schools.

 

Examples of current and past renewable project support for schools and students:

  • The  Riverstart Solar Park in Randolph County will provide more than $8 million to local government to support schools and road improvements, along with other infrastructure

  • $5 million in economic development funds to schools in White County.

  • $105,000 roof repair for elementary school

  • $54,000 to reseal field track

  • $72,000 gym bleachers and floor

  • Laptops for students
