Cincinnati solar project could be largest in U.S.
Cincinnati is in the planning stages of building the largest municipal solar array in the United States. The 100-megawatt installation will be located 40 miles east of downtown Cincinnati, and will cover about 1,000 acres. The city entered a 20-year power purchase agreement so power will be supplied at a fixed cost. The system is slated to power all of the city’s municipal buildings, as well as an additional 25,000 homes, and is due to be completed by 2021.
It is exciting to see a project of this size going up right in our “back yard!”
