Penn State and Lightsource BP announced the development of 70 megawatts of large-scale offsite solar to support the University's Strategic Plan
The project to install large-scale solar arrays will provide 25 percent of Penn State's state-wide electricity requirements over a 25-year term
The targeted completion date is set for July 2020.
The project, a large-scale ground mounted solar array using over 150,000 solar panels in three locations encompassing roughly 500 acres of Franklin County land, will be just outside of Chambersburg near Penn State's Mont Alto campus.
Penn State said that the project is tied for the largest solar project in the state of Pennsylvania.
