  • Barnes & Thornburg attorneys represented a joint venture in its development and sale of a large 10 megawatt/75 acre solar photovoltaic generating system on land owned by a large municipal airport authority. Barnes & Thornburg attorneys helped structure the joint venture involving 3 corporate entities that worked to develop and implement the solar farm project. This is currently the largest solar farm of any airport in the United States. The 52,400 solar panels should generate 17,500,000 kilowatt hours per year - enough to power 1,700 homes for a year. Electricity created from the solar farm will be fed directly into the grid with the airport authority expecting to collect about $316,000 annually in lease payments. The renewable energy produced will prevent approximately 10,700 tons of C02 from being released in to the environment each year, which is the equivalent of removing 2,000 cars from the road.
