Project Details

Posey Solar

Arevon and Tenaska are proud to be developing the Posey Solar Project, located in Posey County, Indiana.

Here is a snapshot of the project:


300 megawatt AC


Posey County, Indiana. The power will be transmitted to the AB Brown - Gibson transmission line.

Land Area

The project will have a footprint of approximately 2,400 acres of land to locate solar panel arrays, an operations and maintenance building, inverters and access roads.


Direct investment in the hundreds of millions of dollars

Power Generation

The project is expected to generate enough solar energy to power the average electricity consumption of approximately 70,000 Indiana homes each year.

Project Life

Once constructed, the project has a 35-year useful life. After this time, it will be decommissioned in accordance with a decommissioning plan and bond.

Economic Development Study

A study conducted in June by Gnarly Tree Sustainability Institute, in collaboration with Dr. Kenneth Richards of Indiana University’s O’Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs, reported that the Posey solar project would bring broad economic benefits to Posey County, including:

Direct Construction Jobs

Employment of varying durations for the equivalent of 250 full-time jobs for 18 months.

Direct Operations Jobs

Full-time employment for 5 workers overseeing operations and maintenance for the expected 35-year project life.

Local Goods and Services

Annual expenditures on goods and services in excess of $1.3 MILLION per year for 35 years.

Gross Domestic Product

Contribution of $47.8 million to Posey County GDP during construction with an additional $1.2 million per year during operations.

Economic Ripples

Additional jobs and spending as an indirect outcome of economic activities created by the project.
