U.S. Great Lakes Region Lights Up with $3.6 Billion in Solar Kickoffs

July 13, 2022--Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas)--The U.S. recently agreed to lift Trump-era tariffs on solar products from Canada and Mexico, after an independent panel said that the duties violated the provisions of the 2018 Canada-United States-Mexico Agreement (CUSMA), and the Great Lakes region may be the first to feel the effects.

Industrial Info is tracking more than $3.6 billion worth of active solar-energy projects across the Great Lakes region that are set to begin construction in the current quarter, almost 75% of which is attributed to projects in Ohio and Indiana.

Ohio has seen only two utility-scale solar farms added to its statewide power grid in the past decade, but the Buckeye State leads its region in solar projects set to begin construction over the next three months. Indiana is second to Ohio in its total investment value for third-quarter solar kickoffs, but is set to begin construction on what could become the largest solar farm in the U.S., by acreage.
