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

The Brickyard Solar Project would generate homegrown, affordable, and clean electricity.  The project is on private land that each landowner should have the right to decide how best to use.

The project would use less than  1% of total county farmland, but would generate big benefits for the entire county:

  • $210  million investment

  • $50 million in property tax payments to Boone County over the life of the project.  Money that can be used: 

    • To invest in schools

    • Upgrade infrastructure

    • Provide broadband internet

    • Support first responders

    • And much more

Brickyard Solar is the type of development that brings economic benefits without adding traffic or messy infrastructure changes.  It costs the community almost nothing - and you get all the benefits.

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.

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.
