The solar company's North American headquarters will move from Michigan to Portage, industry officials said. Governor Mitch Daniels and the company's CEO and president and CEO, John W. Smith Jr., announced that the company will move its headquarters here and create 512 new jobs by 2016. The move represents a $1.2 billion investment in the Indiana state energy sector, the Indian Ministry of Economic and Community Development said. Today we announced that this company will bring an additional 900 megawatts (MW) to Indiana in addition to its current capacity of 1,000 MW.
The project will have a capacity of 435 MW and 75 MW of battery storage. It will be located in White County and is expected to be operational by the end of 2023. It will comprise an estimated 650,000 solar panels and have a total capacity of 1,500 MW, which is 1.5 percent of the company's current capacity in Indiana. The project has annual operating costs of $1 million for the first year of operation and $100 million a year thereafter, according to a press release from the Indiana Department of Energy and Natural Resources (IEDR) and the Portage County Board of Public Utilities (PCU). The projects will also be located in Jasper County and consist of a 1 MW solar field, a 2 MW storage system and a 3 MW wind farm.

About 40 other Indiana schools have also signed a memorandum of understanding to implement solar projects, and BPs have completed wind projects in the state. Completed last December, the MCAS Solar project is the first solar energy project in White County and the second largest of its kind in Indiana. Deputy Director of Earth Charter Indiana, coordinated and helped coordinate the construction of the Portage Solar Energy Project and other projects across the country.
Indiana has also attracted Fronius, which operates a plant in Portage that employs 70 people. Company spokeswoman Tiffany Bley said the Portage plant makes inverters that convert solar energy into electricity and expects steady job growth in the coming years.

FroniiFronius USA, LLC, based in Portage, Indiana, has been shaping the US solar industry since 2002 and is a leading manufacturer of solar solutions. Since 2002, we have formed the American Solar Energy Industries Association (ASIA) and the International Energy Agency (IEA) as the world's leading provider of advanced inverters and inverter solutions for the solar industry.
Fronius USA opened its doors to solar energy in the United States in Brighton, MI, in 2002 and moved to its current headquarters in Portage, Indiana, in 2013 to better serve the growing production needs of its division. The company has been a leader in the technology and production of solar inverters since it started producing battery chargers. FroniiFronius has been headquartered in Portage, USA, for more than a decade, where it manufactures solar modules and inverters, collects solar energy, makes solar modules (PV), solar thermal systems, welding equipment and other products for the solar industry.
The expansion of these three solar projects is part of FroniiFronius "efforts to bring the company's long-term vision for the Portage, Indiana region to life. The solar plants will supply over 1,000 megawatts (MW) of renewable energy and offset the lead time and expected net energy savings from the construction of the new power plant.
For example, the company offers a special facility where children can experiment with some of their own solar panels. The NEED.org Solar Curriculum reinforces our commitment to education, which benefits students by engaging and teaching them how solar-powered systems such as solar photovoltaics (PV) and wind turbines work, "says John R. Smith, CEO of FroniiFronius and president of the company.
In addition, Fronius believes that the maintainability of the inverter on site is crucial to making solar energy more reliable and sustainable. Wikipedia writes: "Solar inverters and PV inverters are crucial components of solar systems. In addition, geothermal systems can save a lot of money by using the earth's heat and energy as a renewable energy source. The Portage Indiana Solar Energy Center (PISEC) is backed by Fr oniiFronius USA LLC, headquartered in Portages, Indiana, which is the largest solar power plant in the USA with more than 1,000 employees.
The company, which was founded in April 2018, specialises in providing a turnkey service to school systems that want to install a solar system but have neither the money nor the know-how - how to handle the installation. Although Hipskind and Poer had no experience with solar energy before the Sun FundED was founded, they founded the company to deal with schools. They call themselves "sun-financed" because they offer the educational component of the installation.
