DUBOIS CO., Ind. (WFIE) – U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Development Indiana State Director Dr. Terry Goodin announced that USDA is investing $1,260,587 in five renewable energy projects across Indiana.

Officials say these projects aim to lower energy costs, generate new income, and create jobs for Hoosier agricultural producers and rural small businesses.

“Through the Rural Energy for America Program, we are demonstrating Indiana’s commitment to building energy efficient communities in rural areas,” Dr. Goodin stated. “These five projects not only reduce energy costs for farmers, small businesses, and rural residents but also creates jobs and support economic growth in our state.”

One of the projects is at Stephen Sanders’ turkey farm in Dubois, Indiana.

Officials say they plan to purchase and install a 51.84 kW solar array using project funds.

This array generates 70,322 kWh annually, saving the business $7,190 per year.
