Vista Sands Solar Farm, near the towns of Plover and Grant in Portage County, is a transformational solar development. Taking place over approximately 8,500 acres of private land, the project is planned to have a capacity of 1.2 gigawatt (GW). It will transform the area with new jobs, added tax revenues, and long-term environmental benefits for current and future generations. Once complete, the development is expected to generate around 2.1 million MWh per year.
The project will bring a total capital investment over of $1 billion and create approximately 500 jobs during construction and about 50 permanent jobs, helping stimulate economic activity that benefits everyone.
For generations, local farmers have cultivated their land and harnessed the power of the sun to produce potatoes and vegetables. Respecting that heritage, a group of local farmers has agreed to lease their land to Doral. For the next generation, we’ll use the land to harvest the power of the sun to produce clean electricity – all while helping stimulate and grow the local economy.
At the end of the lease, the solar panels are removed, and the land is still owned by the local families. The next generations can decide the best future use for their land.
