Indiana’s solar capacity is set to surge in the next three years as the state’s second-biggest utility unveils plans to develop three large-scale PV projects, two of which will include battery storage. 

Northern Indiana Public Service Company (NIPSCO) has secured build-transfer agreements with subsidiaries of NextEra Energy Resources to develop 900MW of solar as well as 135MW of battery storage.

NextEra Energy Resources will construct the projects and NIPSCO will enter into joint ventures to own, operate and maintain some facets of these assets once construction is complete.

The buildout consists of: Dunns Bridge Solar I, a 265MW project in Jasper County; Dunns Bridge Solar II, a 435MW park paired with 75MW of battery storage and also located in Jasper County; and Cavalry Solar, a 200MW development with 60MW of battery storage to be constructed in White County. All are expected to be operational by 2023.
