IPL will purchase the energy under a 15-year power purchase agreement. According to the companies, the installations, combined, will be the largest in the Midwest to date.

"We are gratified to be awarded this opportunity by IPL. This is a significant project, and SEV is proud to be developing the largest cumulative solar power project in the Midwest," says Dean Leischow, managing director of SEV.
