Indiana Municipal Power Agency and the Town of Pendleton are celebrating a new solar park. The IMPA Pendleton Solar Park is located on 16 acres of land and includes more than 8,000 panels. The facility can produce up to two MW of energy, which is enough to power 300 to 400 homes.
Officials cut the ribbon on the facility on Friday.
“IMPA welcomed the opportunity to expand our power supply and bring the benefits of renewable energy to Pendleton,” said Raj Rao, President and CEO of IMPA. “The addition of more solar parks throughout the state not only provides an educational impact to IMPA’s member communities, but serves to bolster our already diverse portfolio, reinforcing our goal to provide municipally-owned utilities with a power supply that is low-cost, reliable and environmentally responsible.”
The new solar facility is owned and operated by IMPA. The agency currently has solar parks in Argos, Bainbridge, Crawfordsville, Frankton, Pendleton, Peru, Rensselaer, Richmond and Tell City.
