Harvesting the Illinois Sunshine

ACCIONA's first solar PV project in Illinois

ACCIONA is excited to be expanding its investment in Stephenson County. The High Point Solar Farm will be located within the EcoGrove Wind Farm, which the company has owned and operated for more than a decade.  When complete the project will add 100 MW of clean energy capacity to the Illinois grid.


The project will employ more than 250 people during peak construction.  ACCIONA’s team is committed to using local businesses and services providers when possible during construction and operation.

How a large-scale photovoltaic plant is built in record time

A solar-panel complex was completed a few months ago in the Sonoran Desert in Mexico. From a bird's-eye view, the Puerto Libertad photovoltaic plant looks like a large glass lake. Together, the panels are able to generate clean energy
