Local Communities

Renewable power projects have a beneficial impact on the rural communities in which they are located.  Hundreds of jobs are created during a project's construction phase while associated economic activity results in added revenues for local businesses.  In the operations phase, our projects create skilled maintenance jobs, offer sales and contracting opportunities for local businesses, provide a diversified income source to project landowners, and generate significant property tax revenues.  In some cases, a large wind or solar project is the largest taxpayer in a county.

"Wind energy has done something amazing here and Orion was a wonderful partner. They did everything they told us they were going to do." – Tom Howes, Sr. Member Stark County Board
