RICHMOND, Ind. - A utility says its latest solar farm in eastern Indiana has started generating electricity.
Indiana Municipal Power Agency says the eight-acre solar farm on the grounds of Richmond Power and Light contains about 4,000 solar panels. They will generate one megawatt of electricity at peak capacity, or enough electricity to power about 200 homes.
Indiana Municipal says the Richmond solar farm utilizes a horizontal tracking system for the panels that enables them to move, tracking the sun throughout the day. It says construction began earlier this year and was completed this month. A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held Friday.
Indiana Municipal also operates solar farms in Rensselaer and Frankton. The not-for-profit wholesale power provider serves 59 Indiana communities.
