The solar project will provide cost-effective solar energy and an additional, renewable energy source to the region. Located on private land in Cambridge, Cussewago, Venango, and Washington townships, the project will utilize land in a long-term agreement with private landowners in an environmentally responsible way and will return the land to agricultural use at the conclusion of the project’s life.

Location and size
1,100-1,700 acres of land for the project located on private land. Land under the solar panels will be a mix of native grasses and local plants to encourage pollinators.
The solar project will generate 116 MW of electricity yearly, enough to power roughly 22,000 homes annually.
The pre-development period will start in 2020 with a focus on obtaining feedback from the local community. The construction period will begin as early as the end of 2021, and commercial operation is scheduled to occur at the end of 2022. With more than 475 MW of installed solar capacity, Pennsylvania is gradually increasing solar capacity and is currently 22nd among all the states.
