MISHAWAKA — Indiana Michigan Power will break ground on its first solar power facility in Michiana.
The company plans to build five solar facilities at a cost of $38 million by the end of 2016. Monday’s groundbreaking is for the project by the Twin Branch Dam in Mishawaka.
Currently I&M does not produce any solar power, although it plans to go from zero to 16 megawatts of capacity through its clean energy solar pilot project.
The other facilities will be in Olive Township between South Bend and New Carlisle; Marion and Watervliet, Mich.
The location for the fifth facility has not yet been determined.
