Sunrise Energy Ventures, a Minnesota-based solar development company, has received approval from the City of Macomb, Illinois, to sell it a seventeen-acre parcel of land so that the firm can develop a solar farm.

The land is situated along East University Drive in a business park adjacent to an Ameren Illinois substation, which the company says is an ideal location for connecting directly to the electric grid.

Macomb has around 20,000 residents and is home to Western Illinois University, NTN Bower (maker of precision roller bearings) and a Pella Window factory. The company will bring the first solar installation to Macomb, making renewable energy available to Ameren customers and others who wish to purchase solar power. The two megawatt installation will generate enough power for around 300 homes per annum.
