BENTON SOLAR PROJECT
Up to 100 Megawatts of Clean Energy in Minden Township, Minnesota
Since 2000, NextEra Energy Resources' subsidiaries have been helping fuel the state’s economic growth and quality of life and moving our country toward energy independence. To date, we have invested approximately $550 million in Minnesota, including Marshall Solar in Lyon County.
Features of the Benton Solar project:
- Photovoltaic (PV) solar arrays capable of generating up to 100 megawatts (MW) of clean, renewable energy.
- The project encompasses approximately 2,500 acres.
- Subject to local and state approvals, the project is scheduled to begin operations by Summer 2026.
Bringing Economic Opportunities
Solar projects generate home-grown, renewable energy while preserving clean air and water. They can also generate significant economic benefits for the communities that host them.
