American Municipal Power Inc. (AMP) has announced a joint development agreement with DG AMP Solar LLC, a subsidiary of NextEra Energy Resources LLC, providing the framework for development, construction and operation of 80 MW or more of new solar generation.

AMP is a public power agency with 131 member communities in Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia.  It also has one joint action agency in Delaware, the Delaware Municipal Electric Corporation (DEMEC).
