The first solar park in southern Indiana makes its grand opening on Wednesday in Tell City. The Indiana Municipal Power Agency used 4,000 solar panels to build the solar park.
It services 250 houses in Tell City. The panels produce one megawatt of solar energy.
"Today, as we recognize the investment of the solar park by IMPA here in the Tell City community, said Mayor Barbara Ewing, "this is a huge step forward."
IMPA says it plans to build more than 60 solar energy parks in Indiana in the next 5 to 10 years. The company currently operates 8 solar parks throughout the state.
