About The Project
Currently, we are working through early project construction including civil and electrical work on site, with construction projected to continue through 2024.
Hardin Solar III is projected to be operational by 2025.
During the life of the project, Hardin Solar III is projected to pay millions of dollars in property taxes, lease payments to landowners, salaries to employees, and payments for local goods and services, resulting in a significant increase in economic activity in the Hardin County area. Local schools and county infrastructure will benefit from the increase in tax revenue.
Ohio is one of the top states for total energy consumption due to the large population, industrialized economy, and seasonal temperature variations. With increasing renewable energy portfolio goals for the state and a limited amount of existing renewable energy resources currently available, there are many opportunities for development throughout the state.
We are committed to our host communities and look forward to continuing to work closely with Hardin County, contributing to the region's economic development, and providing clean, homegrown energy to Ohio.
To avoid and minimize impacts to wildlife and other natural resources, we work with state and federal agencies along with other interested stakeholders to site, build, and operate our facilities responsibly. The cornerstone of that effort is our commitment to act in accordance with the US Fish and Wildlife Service's Land-based Wind Energy Guidelines, which include robust pre-construction wildlife and habitat surveys, early and often communication with wildlife agencies, and operational monitoring to ensure risk to wildlife is minimized.
