ALAMO SOLAR I, LLC
Alamo Solar I, LLC submitted an application for a Certificate of Environmental Compatibility and Public Need to the Ohio Power Siting Board in December of 2018. At a capacity of 69.9 Megawatts, the Project will be constructed and operate within an approximately 919-acre area of privately owned land approximately 2 miles south of Eaton and 3 miles north of Camden in Preble County, Ohio. Alamo plans to commence construction of the facility during the fourth quarter of 2019 and place the facility in service by December 2020.
The Project Area is ideal for a utility-scale solar project because it is adjacent to a point in Dayton Power & Light’s portion of the regional transmission system, at which power can be supplied without the need for substantial and costly upgrades to that system. Use of the Project Area will enable the generation of large amounts of solar power because it is generally level and open. Areas of the Project visible to neighboring landowners or along major transportation routes can be screened with native vegetation.
The Project will consist of solar photo-voltaic panels and will not use any fuel, any appreciable amount of water, and it will not generate any air pollution, water pollution, or hazardous waste. The equipment comprising the Project will have very few moving parts and will make almost no sound. With only minimal disturbance of topsoil and few underground foundations, the Project will require very few changes to the land surface and will productively utilize existing, open agricultural fields. Energy from the Project will be injected into the local electric grid; local schools will benefit from an influx of tax dollars, create well-paying temporary and permanent jobs, and diversify income sources for area families.
