Indiana Michigan Power adding solar energy

Officials from Indiana Michigan Power have announced plans to add solar energy to the company’s generation fleet.
The measure follows the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission’s approval of I&M’s plans for five solar facilities with a combined capacity of nearly 16 megawatts.
Three of the facilities will be in the Michiana area, including two in St. Joseph County.
Company officials said approval of I&M’s Clean Energy Solar Pilot Project plans comes at a time when solar resources are declining and utility-scale solar is more cost-effective than rooftop systems.
The facilities where locations are final will be on property owned by I&M near existing and future I&M substations, which helps minimize the cost of delivering the energy to the transmission grid.
The estimated cost of the project is $38 million.
