In 2014, Hoosier Energy announced a 10-megawatt solar program that consists of ten 1-megawatt solar arrays to be installed across member service territories. Four installations began in 2015 with construction of the remainder slated to begin in 2016.
The program is part of Hoosier Energy’s “all-of-the-above” strategy to diversify its generation portfolio and provide the best balance for an affordable power supply.
A key goal of the solar program is to learn how this variable energy resource integrates onto the grid and how solar might offset the need for other more costly energy resources during periods of high demand.
