Central Indiana city moves closer to solar park approval

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

A Madison County city is moving closer to approving a solar-energy project that could provide power to about 1,000 homes.

The Indiana Municipal Power Agency is expected to receive the Frankton Town Council's approval next Tuesday for a zoning change it needs for the proposed solar park.

The Carmel-based wholesale power provider wants to install 4,000 solar panels capable of generating one megawatt of power.

The solar park will cover eight acres in the city about 35 miles northeast of Indianapolis and be surrounded by a fence. It's the first of three such solar-energy projects the energy provider is developing in Indiana.

Frankton's clerk/treasurer Jack Brown told The Herald Bulletin he anticipates no opposition to the zoning change from council members.
