August 04, 2021

AES Indiana today announced plans to acquire and construct the 250MW Petersburg solar plus storage facility in the U.S. state of Indiana from NextEra Energy Resources for an undisclosed price.

The project, in Pike County, will have 180 megawatt-hours of storage capacity.

It will be connected to AES Indiana’s existing Petersburg generating station and supply the equivalent of 45,000 homes during peak hours.

The solar farm also requires approval by the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission.

If approved, it is expected to be operational no later than 1 May 2024.

AES Indiana president and chief executive Kristina Lund said: “The Petersburg solar project is a win-win solution that adds new technologies to our generation fleet, while also keeping economic benefits right here in Indiana.
