We are excited to announce TWO Clean Energy projects for 2019: The Clean Energy Co-op will be working with the Wayne County government to install a solar array on the roof of the Stourbridge Projectbuilding on Park St. in Honesdale, and also with Von Oeclsher Farms LLC for a ground-mount solar array on that farm in Damascus.

Our very 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 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!
