Minooka Opens New Solar Farm at the Wastewater Treatment Plant

The Village of Minooka recently worked with Verde Solutions to construct a solar energy system that will power one hundred percent of the Village’s wastewater treatment plant’s energy needs. The Village did not incur any costs for construction but will, in fact, save an estimated $533,000 over the span of the 25-year power purchase agreement. The project has turned out to be a win-win for the Village, as it will save a substantial amount of taxpayer money while simultaneously reducing the Village’s carbon footprint. Thank you Verde Solutions LLC and all the Village officials that worked to make this possible. We also want to thank Illinois Valley Industries, AppleJax Creations, and the Grundy County Chamber of Commerce & Industry for joining us at the Solarbration event!
