Add Your Name to the Statement of Support for Renewables in Indiana!
Solar Projects provide funding for schools, broadband and more.
Local solar energy projects help provide a better future for our children and grandchildren. Solar projects deliver millions in investments and tax revenue that can go to strengthen our schools, provide highspeed internet and make Indiana a more attractive state for business.
These benefits together mean a growing community and opportunity for the next generation of Hoosiers.
Solar projects typically use less than 2% of county farmland but provide millions of dollars in benefits and tax revenue.
That's money that can be used to:
Invest in schools
Provide broadband internet
Support first responders
Fix roads or support local infrastructure
Rural economic development experts and community leaders from across the state support new solar projects.
Because of payments made from solar and other renewable energy projects, some rural communities are able to provide highspeed internet access in places where there is none today. This high speed access is vital as schools and businesses increasingly rely heavily on remote learning and work from home.
Solar Can Help Keep Indiana Competitive, Providing Opportunities for our Children and Grandchildren
Large employers like Google, Facebook and Amazon are looking to locate in states with access to renewables, and Indiana large employers like Walmart, Cummins, Eli Lilly, General Motors and Best Buy have all expressed public support for access to renewable energy.
