Duke Energy Indiana seeks solar power proposals

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Duke Energy Corp. is seeking proposals for solar power projects called for under a settlement the utility reached last year with consumer groups.

Duke Energy Indiana's request seeks solar energy proposals that could provide up to five megawatts of electric power. Companies can propose one large solar power project or smaller projects of no less than 250 kilowatts each totaling up to five megawatts of power production.

Duke reached a settlement with consumer groups last August ending a challenge to the utility's state air permit for its $3.5 billion, coal-gasification plant that went online last summer.

One option under that settlement was building or contracting for 15 megawatts of wind and solar energy. Duke has already agreed to purchase 10 megawatts of power from Purdue University's planned Tippecanoe County wind farm.

  • More details please ...
    Do you have an idea as to who the main contact for this project is? Is there an RFP deadline? I work for Solar Energy Systems, LLC [ http://solarenergysystemsllc.com ] and would love more information. Thanks in advance!
  • Point of reference
    I would be nice on stories like this if journalist would give a point of reference, or scope. How much does 5 megawatt represent? How much does Duke produce/ use on an monthly, or annual basis? This should be something learned in introductory courses as one prepares for a career in journalism.

  1. The east side does have potential...and I have always thought Washington Scare should become an outlet mall. Anyone remember how popular Eastgate was? Well, Indy has no outlet malls, we have to go to Edinburgh for the deep discounts and I don't understand why. Jim is right. We need a few good eastsiders interested in actually making some noise and trying to change the commerce, culture and stereotypes of the East side. Irvington is very progressive and making great strides, why can't the far east side ride on their coat tails to make some changes?

  2. Boston.com has an article from 2010 where they talk about how Interactions moved to Massachusetts in the year prior. http://www.boston.com/business/technology/innoeco/2010/07/interactions_banks_63_million.html The article includes a link back to that Inside Indiana Business press release I linked to earlier, snarkily noting, "Guess this 2006 plan to create 200-plus new jobs in Indiana didn't exactly work out."

  3. I live on the east side and I have read all your comments. a local paper just did an article on Washington square mall with just as many comments and concerns. I am not sure if they are still around, but there was an east side coalition with good intentions to do good things on the east side. And there is a facebook post that called my eastside indy with many old members of the eastside who voice concerns about the east side of the city. We need to come together and not just complain and moan, but come up with actual concrete solutions, because what Dal said is very very true- the eastside could be a goldmine in the right hands. But if anyone is going damn, and change things, it is us eastside residents

  4. Please go back re-read your economics text book and the fine print on the February 2014 CBO report. A minimum wage increase has never resulted in a net job loss...

  5. The GOP at the Statehouse is more interested in PR to keep their majority, than using it to get anything good actually done. The State continues its downward spiral.
