bp solar

In 2021, bp acquired nine gigawatts of solar development projects and is working with Lightsource bp to exclusively develop the projects, spreading across 12 US states with the largest portfolios in Texas and the Midwest

Once developed, these projects will have the capacity to generate enough clean energy to power around 1.7 million US homes. We are in action as the development process has begun for a number of these projects, including:

  • Juliet Solar, a 101 megawatt (MW) solar facility on approximately 670 acres of land in Wood County, Ohio. Once complete, the project is expected to generate approximately 212,000 megawatt-hours (MWh) of electricity each year and contribute approximately $890,000 into the tax base annually.
  • Cepheus Solar, a 68 megawatt (MW) solar facility in Delaware Township within Defiance County, Ohio is expected to add $20 million in revenue to the tax base over the life of the project, with approximately $10 Million expected to be paid to the Fairview Local School District.
  • Arche Solar, a 107 megawatt (MW) solar farm, will provide a stable, long term economic benefit to the Fayette area through benefits from increased tax revenues paid throughout the project life and an opportunity for new jobs, with dire impact on employment during the construction phase.
