Rivian and partners are turning a huge Kentucky coal mine into an 800 MW solar farm

The $1 billion investment will be the largest clean energy project in KY and one of the largest in the US to be built on former mine lands.

Rivian, BrightNight, and The Nature Conservancy will together turn one of the largest coal mines in the US into Kentucky’s largest solar farm.

Starfire Mine used to be one of the largest coal mines in the US.
