CLEAR MOUNTAIN ENERGY CENTER

Savion is developing Clear Mountain Energy Center, a solar energy generation facility near the Village of Williamsburg, Ohio. The project is expected to utilize approximately 700 acres of land and generate up to 100 megawatts (MW) of clean electricity and provide 52 MW of battery energy storage over its expected 35-year operating life. This project has the potential to power the equivalent of 21,600 Ohio homes. 

 

The project is expected to create more than 150 jobs in Clermont County during its construction phase, plus some permanent long-term local jobs during its operations stage. An estimated $27 - $31 million in tax revenue would be generated over the life of the project, helping to fund local school districts, county infrastructure improvements, and municipal services such as first responders.

Benefits of Solar

BENEFITS OF A
SOLAR PROJECT

 

Image by Federico Respini

A solar project provides a healthy, productive economic development opportunity for local landowners to harvest a stable cash crop—the sun. Benefits include positive impacts to the local economy through revenue to local governments and support to other local services.

In addition to being safe and compatible with agricultural and rural residential uses, solar energy facilities exist in harmony with wildlife and the environment. They make good neighbors because they operate almost silently without producing odor or byproducts or attracting additional traffic.

 In the bigger picture, solar energy projects provide an abundant, earth-friendly, sustainable power resource to help stabilize electricity costs. These amazing systems lessen carbon emissions and contribute to the diversification of the nation’s electricity grid.

Local Benefits

LOCAL ECONOMIC
BENEFITS

Solar power produces direct positive economic impacts by contributing to the economic revitalization of local communities through increases to the local tax base and by creating stable revenue to fund local schools and other taxing bodies.  ​

 

Solar power also generates indirect positive economic impacts during the construction process as local businesses (restaurants, gas stations, hotels, stores, and more) and supply chains experience an influx of customers.

New Project Name 

October 2022
