Solar Farm for SEPTA
THE 17.5-MEGAWATT ELK HILL Solar
2 solar farm-developed, owned and
operated by Lightsource bp-is operational. The facility, located in Franklin
County, PA, will generate an estimated
27,377 MWh of solar energy, or nearly
10 percent of the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority's
(SEPTA) 380,000 MWh per year electricity demand.
" Transit is inherently sustainable,
and this is just another example of how
solar investment benefits not just the
environment, but the transit industry as

a whole, " said SEPTA General Manager
Leslie S. Richards. " Supporting the
development of local renewable energy
is another way we can deepen our
positive environmental impact, and this
premier project will start the charge in
achieving our long-term and ambitious
sustainability goals in this vital field,
which will only become more important
in the future. "
" We're thrilled to partner with SEPTA,
an organization committed to its sustainability goals, while supporting development of new solar energy sources
within the state to create
jobs in local communities
during these challenging
times, " said Kevin Smith,
chief executive officer
of Lightsource bp in the
Americas.
In addition to providing
cost-competitive, locally
generated renewable energy,
Elk Hill Solar 2 created 100
jobs during the construction
of the facility. This project is
one of two solar farms that
Elk Hill Solar 2, developed under a power purchase agreement
SEPTA and Lightsource bp
between SEPTA and Lightsource bp, is helping advance energy
announced on Earth Day in
and sustainability priorities for both the agency and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
