Wabash Valley Power recently joined its member cooperatives to dedicate three new solar array sites in Peru, Indiana; Paris, Illinois; and Ste. Genevieve, Missouri. The new sites will join existing arrays in Danville and Wanatah, Indiana, to produce electricity for a new community solar program called Co-op Solar, which will be available to members of participating electric co-ops. The program will generate up to 1.7 megawatts of electricity.

The solar array dedications featured speakers, a ribbon cutting, an array tour and a question and answer session about the solar program. For more information about Co-op Solar, including those electric co-ops participating, visit
