Pennsylvania has approved a $18 million investment in 37 solar projects in 16 counties, according to the Department of Community and Economic Development.
The 37 projects, approved through the state's solar energy program, are in Adams, Allegheny, Beaver, Berks, Bucks, Chester, Cumberland, Franklin, Lancaster, Lawrence, Lehigh, Montgomery, Northampton, Philadelphia, Schuylkill and York counties. The projects are expected to leverage nearly $88 million in private investments.
The solar projects will have an installed capacity of more than 24 MW and will generate at least 26,600 MWh of electricity annually. In addition to generating 26,600 solar renewable energy credits a year, the systems will result in annual savings of over $5.2 million next 20 years, according to the Department of Community and Economic Development.
