BENTON SOLAR PROJECT
About the Project
The Benton Solar project is an innovative solar project proposed for Benton County and Minden and St. George Townships, Minnesota that will have a capacity of up to 100 megawatts of clean, renewable, American-made solar energy. The Benton Solar project is more than solar panels — it represents a significant capital investment in Minnesota. Once operational, it will create good-paying jobs and millions in additional revenue for the local community.
It is a subsidiary of NextEra Energy Resources, LLC, the world’s largest generator of renewable energy from the wind and the sun.
*Estimated over first 30 years of the project. All figures are estimated and subject to change.
