I don't claim to be an expert when it comes to solar farms but that sounds like a scam. They are trying to collect some sort of government grant or tax break and will file for bankruptcy before a single solar panel has been placed.

Even if building a solar farm was cost effective, which is doubtful, why would they put it there? Building on the site of an abandoned mall would be more expensive than buying a cornfield or vacant lot, and such sites are easy to find in the southeast quadrant of Marion County.
