Solar farm coming to Kokomo
It’s an idea that the city of Kokomo has flirted with for seven years, and now it’s happening. Inovateus Solar LLC of South Bend has entered an agreement with Duke Energy to produce solar power in the city, and it will use the former Continental Steel site to do it.
“We are excited,” said Mayor Greg Goodnight. “It generates a little bit of revenue for the city, but they take on the responsibility of the area being covered and helps us save a little money on upkeep.
“We’ve had other people show interest in doing this over the years, but this seemed like the best fit. Everything is good environmentally. There are some places on the property where they will be limited on what they can do, but others that will allow a more liberal reuse.”
