Fort Wayne-based Indiana Michigan Power has broken ground on a solar generation facility near Mishawaka. The Twin Branch Solar Facility will have nearly 29,000 panels and is expected to generate energy equivalent to powering more than 350 homes annually. The project is expected to be finished by the end of 2016.
“I&M sees a bright future in solar power, and we are pleased to bring large-scale solar generation to Michiana,” Indiana Michigan Power President Paul Chodak III said.
Meanwhile, Indiana Michigan Power has also launched IM Solar, a program that allows Indiana customers to use local solar power without the expense of installing their own system.
“IM Solar gives all of our Indiana customers the opportunity to effectively reduce their CO2/environmental footprint in a cost-effective manner,” Chodak said. “We will be happy to build more of these installations as needed to meet customer demand.”
