Community Energy Solar Project Powers Philadelphia
Recently, the PPA of the 70MW solar project of clean energy developer Community Energy has been approved to provide electricity to Philadelphia's government facilities.
The project, located in Adams County, Pennsylvania, will generate enough electricity to operate 22% of the Philadelphia government building by 2020.
Once the project is completed, the unit will become Pennsylvania's largest photovoltaic site and an important step toward Philadelphia's clean energy goal, which will generate 100% of its electricity from renewable sources by 2030.
The project will sell 100% of its electricity to an independent city agency, the Philadelphia Energy Administration, under a 20-year contract. The project will generate 156,000 MWh of energy in the first year of operation and eliminate more than 4 million tons of CO2 emissions throughout the life of the project.
Community Energy CEO and co-founder said, "Philadelphia's Solar Commitment demonstrates impressive and much-needed leadership in climate change in Pennsylvania. As the cost of climate change rises, Philadelphia is ensuring for the municipality Reliable long-term solar energy removes carbonization and prevents irreversible weather damage."
Through the project, economic opportunity programs will be used to integrate businesses owned by ethnic minorities, women and people with disabilities into Adams solar photovoltaic installations.
Mayor Philadelphia said, “This project will not only help Philadelphia to play a leading role in climate action, but also have good economic significance and help promote regional employment growth in the field of renewable energy. We are grateful to the female member, Reynolds Brown. The Philadelphia Energy Authority and community energy companies have created this win-win partnership for the Filaders."
