According to EDP Renewables North America, this 110 MW solar project, set to begin commercial operation in 2024, will power over 27,800 Illinois homes, save 139 million gallons of water annually, and prevent air pollution causing smog, acid rain, and climate change. With a capital investment of over $130 million, the project will create 300+ construction jobs, multiple permanent jobs, and generate millions of dollars for local landowners and governments.
