Oak Run Solar Project

Savion, through Oak Run Solar Project, LLC, is developing a large solar project in Madison County, Ohio, north of London near Plumwood.


We are contacting landowners about participating in the project and starting outreach to local officials and stakeholders to introduce them to the project and discuss our interests.


The project scale and design, as well as the location of project facilities, will depend on several considerations:
which landowners agree to participate; feedback from the community; regulatory requirements; best practices
to ensure project competitiveness; and efforts to avoid and minimize adverse impacts on the host community
and environmental and cultural resources.


This project has the potential to utilize up to 10,000 acres of land and generate up to 1,600 MW of clean
electricity, enough to power approximately 342,000 Ohio households. With this scale comes the potential for
extensive economic benefits to the host townships, school districts, and Madison County:

 

  • Total new tax revenue for the host townships, school districts, and Madison County is estimated
    at $7.2-$14.4 million per year and $252-$504 million over the expected 35-year operating life of the project.

  • Tens of millions of dollars in new local earnings during construction and millions of dollars in new local long-term earnings in Madison County.

  • Several hundred new Madison County construction jobs during the 4 to 8 year construction phase.

  • Dozens of new long-term jobs in Madison County during the project’s operating phase.

 

Project Information

The project location in Madison County, Ohio was selected because it provides suitable land area where large-scale solar development is possible as well as environmentally compatible with the surrounding vicinity. Solar power facilities are strategically located near transmission infrastructure with the capacity to deliver the project's energy to regional customers. Once operational, the solar project will be a quiet revenue generator that benefits the entire community over decades through a robust local green energy economy.

Benefits of a Solar Project

A solar project provides a healthy, productive economic development opportunity for local land to harvest a stable cash crop–the sun. Benefits include positive impacts to the local economy through new tax revenue to local governments and school districts. Local businesses experience increased sales (e.g., hotels, goods & services, community restaurants, construction materials) and new jobs are created to support the project during construction and operation.  

 

In addition to being safe and compatible with agricultural and rural residential uses, solar energy facilities exist in harmony with wildlife and the environment. They make good neighbors because they operate almost silently without producing odor or byproducts; or attracting additional traffic.

 

In the bigger picture, solar energy projects provide an abundant, earth-friendly, sustainable power resource to help stabilize electricity costs. These amazing systems lessen carbon emissions and contribute to the diversification of the nation’s electricity grid.

 

Meet Our Team

As development advances, frequent and transparent information and education will be provided about solar energy and the project. This will include various platforms and opportunities to connect with the project team for feedback, details, and answers to questions.


We would appreciate any recommendations about landowners and other potential stakeholders to whom we should be reaching out.
