Fulton County REMC and AG Technologies are currently making history by partnering together on Indiana’s first battery storage of energy collected from a solar array.
It’s now collecting energy through a grid of 2,855 solar panels on a five-acre plot of leased land, east of Alumni Tech Products in Talma. Storage will come from two 56,000 pound Tesla batteries.
The grand opening was celebrated Thursday, on-site with speeches and a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
Joe Koch, CEO of Fulton County REMC said the local support has been tremendous.
Koch explained the impact this project will make on the community.
The project is being financed by First Federal Savings Bank. Dick Belcher, CEO of First Federal Savings Bank reminisced during the ceremony.
