Lightsource bp has mobilized construction on the Bellflower solar farm in Indiana, about 40 miles east of Indianapolis in Spiceland Township. Bellflower was financed with private capital, will be owned and operated by Lightsource bp, and will have an output power capacity of 173 megawatts – generating enough clean energy to power the equivalent of 26,800 local homes per year.

Lightsource bp has financed, mobilized construction, and will own and operate the facility and sell the solar energy it generates to Verizon Communications under a long-term power purchase agreement. Full construction has started, with commercial operation expected by late 2022. The Bellflower project is creating about 200 jobs during construction.

The site for Bellflower was carefully selected. Our project development included site specific environmental assessments that include cultural surveys, threatened and endangered species assessments, wetlands delineations, as well as consultation with wildlife regulatory agencies. Another important aspect of our development process is Lightsource bp’s commitment to engaging with local stakeholders within the community.
