AEP Energy and Doral Renewables signed a long-term renewable energy purchase agreement for the second phase of the Mammoth solar project in Indiana.
The 360 MW Mammoth Solar II is part of the 1.65 GW Mammoth project being developed by Doral on roughly 12,000 acres in Starke and Pulaski counties in northern Indiana.
The agreement follows a long-term renewable energy purchase agreement signed by the two in April for the first phase of the project, covering 480 MW.
Mammoth Solar II is expected to begin construction during 2022 and reach commercial operation in 2024.
The developers have touted the benefits of removing so much farmland from active production to make room for the solar project, including reduced use of chemicals and fertilizers and the reduction of around 1 billion gallons a year of water used for irrigation.
