Athen’s innovative large-scale solar project is one we should be paying attention to. From solar panels at the library field to canopies above parking lots at the city pool, it’s a new model in Appalachian climate-friendly development. Leveraging private financing and public tax credits, the solar array comes at no cost to taxpayers, while reducing public energy costs and reducing over a billion (you read that right) pounds of carbon in the atmosphere over the next three decades. All while creating good union jobs.
