Located in Lycoming County in Central Pennsylvania, the Goonies Solar project is affiliated with both the area’s history and its future. The privately funded Goonies Solar project is one of the first projects developed by Doral Renewables and will generate 194 megawatts of clean, renewable electric power, enough to serve 23,000 households annually.
This project, being one of the largest solar farms in Pennsylvania, will make a significant contribution to Pennsylvania’s renewable energy portfolio, enabling local utilities, commerce and industry to procure power generated in Lycoming County that would otherwise be generated in neighboring counties. It serves as a good incentive for large modern companies, such as data centers and advanced manufacturers, to bring jobs to Lycoming County.
The 1,100 -acre solar farm is full of pesky rocks some of the farmers call “Goonies,” and has been used for agriculture despite being in a flood zone. The farm is also located nearby a historic tribal settlement.
