Harvesting Sunshine in Buckeye State

Located in Central Ohio, the Union County solar project is an economic development opportunity being pursued by AEUG Union Solar, LLC (ACCIONA)

The project represents an estimated $320M investment that will create more than 300 local jobs at peak construction. It will create an estimated 12 to 14 full-time jobs during operation. The project will contribute millions in local tax revenue over its 30+ year lifetime.

 

ACCIONA’s team is committed to using local businesses and services providers when possible during construction and operation.
