Two New Solar Farms Being Planned in Indiana

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ Two new solar farms are being planned in Indiana, including a second large one on the grounds of Indianapolis International Airport.
 
The airport project will see a developer lease about 76 acres of land along the airport's entrance road off Interstate 70 for the electricity-generating project that will consist of about 37,500 panels.
 
Indy Airport Solar Partners president Kurt Schneider tells The Indianapolis Business Journal the project is estimated to cost $20 million and $25 million. His company runs the 44,000-panel solar farm that was completed at the airport last year.
 
The Kokomo Tribune reports the Indiana Municipal Power Association is planning its fourth solar farm in the state, with a new one set for near the Miami County city of Peru with almost 3,900 panels.
