WVPA, Ranger Power to Triple Illinois Solar Capacity
Wabash Valley Power’s member co-ops will benefit from recently completed long-term agreements to purchase the energy and capacity generated by what will be the largest solar arrays ever built in Illinois.
Wabash Valley Power will be the sole buyer of the energy produced from two 99-megawatt (MW) arrays to be built by New York-based Ranger Power, a utility-scale solar development company. Wabash Valley Power will purchase the power produced by the arrays, while the renewable energy credits (RECs) associated with the projects will be sold through the Illinois Power Agency REC procurement process.
