Installed capacity of 49.9-megawatts of renewable energy

Project overview

The Blue Harvest Solar Park will be located in northwestern Putnam County, southwest of the town of Continental. The solar park will complement the area’s agricultural resources, providing farmers with a stable, drought-resistant cash crop in the form of landowner lease payments. Blue Harvest Solar Park will also generate millions of dollars in payments to local governments through the life of the project, benefiting schools, health and fire departments, and the township and county.
