Aspen Road Solar in Franklin County, Pennsylvania

A Solar Project Under Construction

in Franklin County, Pennsylvania

Aspen Road Solar is sited on a remote parcel of land with existing natural buffers. The design of the project incorporates wildlife corridors throughout, encouraging the natural habitat to thrive when construction is completed. The solar facility will be located in Franklin County and interconnected to an existing 115kV transmission line.

Aspen Road Solar is under construction.

Benefits

What does this project mean for you and your community?

LOCAL ECONOMIC IMPACT

Over its lifetime, Aspen Road Solar will pay millions of dollars in tax revenues to the host counties. That's 25-35 years of guaranteed revenue from a project that does not require costly infrastructure or public services, increase traffic or impact prime farmland. Further, during construction, the project will require hundreds of workers on site, which will provide an economic boost to area businesses and service providers.

LOCALLY GENERATED CLEAN ENERGY

Home-grown solar is vital to reducing America's dependence on foreign oil and enables Pennsylvania to meet its goal to increase production of local renewable energy. The transition to clean energy is powered by strong communities whose landowners, local businesses, and citizens recognize their critical role in making it happen.

LAND RESTORATION AND PROTECTION

Aspen Road Solar will offer local landowners the opportunity to preserve large, open tracts of land that can be used for future generations when the solar facility is removed at the end of its useful life. During the life of Aspen Road Solar, wildlife corridors, pollinators, and other habitat-nurturing features will enable nature to continue to thrive, optimizing our mission as stewards of the land.
