A Ranger Power Project
Economic Growth, Job Creation, and Clean Energy for Families and Businesses in Eastern Iowa
The Clinton County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved Ranger Power’s solar project in May of 2022. In 2023, Ranger Power is proud to present an incremental addition to Hawkeye Solar that will help improve the economic landscape, support local and regional businesses, and create additional revenue sources for the county.
Local and Regional Businesses
The Hawkeye Solar Project is a utility-scale solar project developed by Ranger Power in partnership with private landowners near the city of Grand Mound, Iowa. The project will generate clean, low-cost solar energy for families and businesses in eastern Iowa – with the capacity to power thousands of Iowa homes. It will maintain the character of the rural community while also contributing significant new tax revenue and creating local jobs during construction.
Iowa is a national leader when it comes to advancing clean energy, whether it be wind, solar, ethanol, or biodiesel. The Hawkeye Solar Project will provide direct benefits to Clinton County residents and help the state maintain and even build on this leadership in the years to come.
Ranger Power is a solar development company headquartered in the Midwest and is focused on projects across the heartland. We pride ourselves on working closely with neighbors and other stakeholders to develop projects the local community can be proud of for years to come

PANEL ROWS WILL BE
Rows of panels are separated by open space to prevent shading. Even when panels are flat at midday, a pick-up truck can safely drive between rows.
PANELS WILL BE ABOUT AS TALL AS FULL-GROWN CORN
With the panels positioned to catch the morning or evening sun, the height of the panels will be similar to that of full-grown corn.
When panels are flat at midday, they will be well below the height of full-grown corn.
