Indiana Governor, Honorable Eric Holcomb delivered his 2022 State of the State address on Monday. Nick Cohen, President and CEO of Doral LLC was present as the Project was showcased by the Governor. Indiana is leading its Midwestern neighbors in economic success and Mammoth Solar is part of it.
The project is being developed in Starke and Pulaski counties in Northwest Indiana and covers 13,000 acres of farmland. During construction, it is expected to provide approximately 500 jobs to area residents. Upon completion, it will generate 1.3 gigawatts of clean renewable energy, enough to power over 200,000 Indiana households annually. The project represents an economic investment of approximately $1.5 billion.
“After I visited Tel-Aviv last year, Doral Renewables announced that they were building the largest solar farm in the United States on 13,000 acres in Starke and Pulaski Counties. Eventually, it would generate enough electricity to power hundreds of thousands of homes, all by cultivating the sun. Thank you, Nick (Doral LLC’s President and CEO), for your confidence and an incredible investment in the state of Indiana and our people,” said Governor Holcomb during his address.
Governor Holcomb, the Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC), and the people in Starke and Pulaski counties support of this project has been very strong. Indiana is a leader in the energy sector. Its effort to form the strongest industry cluster is working. Farmers and rural communities are seeing a revitalization as jobs, reduced taxes and millions in new revenue are delivered to the residents of the counties as a result of solar.”
