7-MW solar array coming to rural electric membership cooperative in Indiana

Hendricks Power Cooperative and Solential Energy plan to build a 7-MW . buildAC solar panel in Hendricks County, Indiana, for the Rural Electric Membership Cooperative (REMC). The C&B Graham Solar Energy Project is named after the local family who provide 60 hectares of land for the project.

Solential Energy has successfully partnered with other REMCs on solar projects in the Midwest. This will be the largest utility-scale solar installation in its 13-year history. The location is being worked on. The installation in Tilden, Indiana, will be commissioned in mid-2023 and will generate solar power.

“We are committed to sustainability and reducing our carbon footprint through this clean and pollution-free energy source. As our energy supplier continues to expand its sustainable portfolio, we are proud to independently undertake this solar initiative,” said Hendricks Power CEO Greg Ternet. “Adding a renewable resource to our system, at a price comparable to our wholesale supplier, demonstrates that we are environmentally and cost conscious. We are also proud to work with our local partners and look forward to expanding this platform to allow for member and owner participation.”

“This is truly a special project for Solential, because not only is it the largest solar installation we have ever developed, but also because of the significant impact the C&B Graham Solar Energy Project will have on cooperative members now and in the future” , said Solential CEO Jim Shaw. “We are all concerned about rising energy costs, energy reliability and resilience, and the need to reduce environmental impact. If you can deliver a solution like we are with Hendricks Power, it’s a great day.”

Hendricks Power’s C&B Graham Energy solar project is funded by Denver-based Solriver Capitalwhich invests in distributed generation and utility-scale solar and storage projects in the United States.
