Local Amazon facility is sole offtaker of 375-MW Lightsource bp project in Western Ohio

Lightsource bp has executed a power purchase agreement with Amazon for a new 375-MWDC solar project under development in Ohio. Once complete, the solar facility is expected to deliver nearly 600,000 MWh annually of additional renewable energy for Amazon operations locally.

The project will be located in Auglaize and Allen Counties. It is expected that the Birch Solar Project will be the largest corporate taxpayer in Allen County.

“Amazon has a long-term commitment to utilize 100% renewable energy and has invested in operations infrastructure in Ohio,” said Stephanie Kromer, Director of Energy & Environmental Policy at Ohio Chamber of Commerce. “In just three years, the combined direct, indirect and induced effects of Amazon’s investment in our state could create thousands of new jobs for Ohioans, and hundreds of millions of dollars in new regional income and GDP in Ohio.”
