|Project Name:||Herrin Area Solar Garden|
|Project Size:||2.8 MW|
|Location:||Williamson County, IL|
Impact Power Solutions is developing this site in Williamson County for community solar. It is slated for completion in 2020. When finished this garden is expected to provide enough energy to power over 400 average Illinois homes and offset about 3,500 metric tons of Carbon Dioxide annually.
Preventing this much Carbon Dioxide from being released into the atmosphere is equivalent to adding 4,600 acres of trees to our forests each year. Over a 30-year span, IPS expects this solar garden to offset over 100,000 tons of CO2.
This solar garden create energy independence for nearby cities and provides people in the area the freedom to choose where their power comes from.
