The Montour Solar One project is a joint venture between Pattern Energy and Talen Energy that will provide cost-effective renewable energy to the region. Our approach to building successful facilities is to work closely with residents in a way that is respectful and fits the needs of the landowners and communities that host us. We seek to build partnerships and bring long-term benefits to where we operate. We prioritize relationship building and open communication and aim to address and incorporate feedback, and further local benefits.
Montour Solar One
Montour and Columbia counties, PA
Montour Solar One is being designed as an approximately 100 MW facility.
It will provide safe, affordable, renewable electricity equal to the needs of more than 55,000 Americans.
Target Full Construction Start
Montour Solar One represents a projected investment of $100 million that will provide widespread direct and indirect job creation and economic benefits.
The project will utilize local companies, services, materials, and create jobs. 100–150 construction jobs including equipment operators, electricians, laborers, and others.
Millions of dollars will be spent locally on lodging, food services, gas, groceries, and other services.
We are involved in community giving throughout the life of our projects. Acting as a good neighbor benefits both the communities where we develop and the long-term success of our facilities. A Community Benefits Program with $1 million committed will support the local economy and ensure benefits to the region have a lasting impact through sponsorships and donations.
We place great importance on being active in the communities where we have a presence. Please let us know if your group would like a presentation or if you have suggestions for sponsorships and local causes we can support.
