About the project

Northumberland Solar Project

Enel Green Power is developing the Northumberland Solar Project in the East Chillisquaque and West Chillisquaque Townships of Northumberland County, Pennsylvania. Featuring 70 MW of solar power capacity, commercial operations are expected to begin by the end of 2023. The Northumberland Solar Project will produce enough carbon-free electricity to power 11,000 local Pennsylvania households and avoid the emission of 72,000 tons of CO2 each year

Enel Green Power has a proven record of developing solar and wind projects nationwide, and collaborating closely with landowners and civic leaders to create projects that benefit the entire community.  

Enel Green Power strives not only to be a good neighbor, but also to become a strong community partner. Having an open dialogue with local residents is important to us, and we are dedicated to seeking community input and incorporating as much of that feedback as possible into our plans.

Community Impact

Economic Benefit

Northumberland will bring in approximately $1.7 million in real estate tax revenue over the life of the project, which will benefit the local school district and public services. The project will also create over 330 jobs during construction, and generate predictable, long-term income for landowners.

Agricultural Presence

Agricultural presence can be maintained throughout the life of the project through native vegetation and other dual-use practices such as livestock grazing and bee pollination. While quietly and passively harvesting sunlight, the land beneath the solar panels lies fallow, which allows the quality of the soil to improve.

Visual Impact

Compared to many other types of commercial development, low-profile solar panels present minimal visual impact. Vegetative screening will be added around nearby homes. 

Creating social and economic opportunities for local communities

We are proud to stand side by side with local residents, skilled tradespeople and landowners as we bring hundreds of jobs and millions of dollars into local economies through our renewable energy projects.
