The Infinitus Renewable Energy Park (IREP) is an approved large scale Renewable Energy Production, Industrial and Research project being developed on a 3,000 acre former phosphate mining site in eastern Hillsborough County. IREP will generate renewable power and products; stimulate the Tampa Bay Area economy by creating hundreds of needed full-time jobs; perpetuate its long-term growth and success by promoting innovative research in sustainable technologies and uses; and collaborate with regional institutions to create the educational programs that provide practical experience in the sustainable energy fields and industries; all while working hand-in-hand with the local community and consciously integrating IREP into the area environment.
