Our second Solar PV project is expected to start construction next week! The Co-op has financed a large 37.8kW solar array to go on the barn at The Anthill Farm near Honesdale, Pennsylvania. See the construction progress here.
Our first solar project at the Cooperage in Honesdale was nationally recognized by the Interstate Renewable Energy Council as the BEST 2016 Community Renewables Project!! The project was completed in December 2015 with the help of a the USDA REAP grant and 23 of our members funding the construction! The system is generating 100% of the electricity used by the building's tenants annually. Learn more about the 3iAwards here and about our project by clicking here!
Our community is Wayne and Pike counties of northeast Pennsylvania. But we're just getting started!
