St. Joseph

Solar Farm

We are currently constructing St. Joseph Solar Farm, our largest solar generating facility, which will be located in St. Joseph County, IN. I&M will own and operate the solar farm, building upon our commitment to a sustainable future. The facility will generate 20 megawatts of sun-fueled energy, enough to power 2,700 homes.

We are working in partnership with the University of Notre Dame on the St. Joseph Solar Farm. Notre Dame is promoting its sustainability goals by committing to support 40 percent of the renewable attributes of the facility. We will also collaborate to capitalize on educational opportunities and research benefits.

Local Resources

The St. Joseph Solar Farm will provide a local renewable energy option to power homes and businesses. The solar farm will provide boundless clean energy options for the area, create education opportunities and help attract businesses looking for local green resources.

The 20 MW of renewable power adds to our diverse energy mix that generated more than 70% emission-free energy in 2019.

Many of you have expressed your preference for more renewable energy. We offer optional programs to voluntarily attribute some or all of your energy use to renewable green energy. Learn more about IM Green at Home or IM Green at Work, or call us at 1-800-311-4634.
