Indiana Energy Development

Facilitating solar development in your Indiana community

Solar energy is a growth industry in Indiana. While comprising less than 1 percent of all electricity generation in the state in 2020, solar is poised to grow substantially in the next decade as Indiana utility companies, Hoosier businesses, and residents take advantage of cost-competitive renewable energy.

This trend presents an opportunity for Indiana businesses, residents, and local governments to facilitate economic development and support homegrown energy that is substantially cheaper and more environmentally-friendly than fossil fuels.

According to the Solar Energy Industries Association, the Hoosier state is projected to more than triple its current solar capacity over the next five years. Long-term, solar generation in the state is expected to grow thirtyfold.
