Apex Clean Energy of Charlottesville, Virginia, is developing Brouilletts Creek Solar, a 200 MW facility that is expected to generate enough energy to power up to 39,000 homes per year. Situated in Vermillion County, adjacent to existing transmission lines on remote private land, the location is highly suitable for a solar energy project.

A Clean Economic Opportunity for Vermillion County

Brouilletts Creek Solar offers a new source of economic development with long-term local and state tax revenue for schools, government services, and public infrastructure. The power from Brouilletts Creek Solar will be delivered into the local Indiana electrical grid, helping diversify Indiana’s energy
portfolio. Solar power is one of the most cost-effective sources of electricity available today, and its ability to generate power at peak times helps reduce electricity costs for all consumers.

In addition to creating direct and indirect jobs during construction and operations, Brouilletts Creek Solar will create opportunities
for companies seeking to open new locations in areas with access to renewable power to expand into Vermillion County.
