Benefits of a solar project

A solar project provides a healthy, productive economic development opportunity for local landowners to harvest a stable cash crop–the sun. Benefits include positive impacts to the local economy through tax revenues to local governments and support to other local services. Host communities typically experience economic boosts for local businesses and supply chains and the opportunities for new jobs–primarily during the construction phase.  


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.

Solar power produces direct positive economic impacts by contributing to the economic revitalization of local communities through increases to the local tax base and creating stable revenue to fund local schools and other taxing bodies.  


Solar power also generates indirect positive economic impacts during the construction process as local businesses (restaurants, gas stations, hotels, stores, and more) and supply chains experience an influx of customers.

Without the vision and partnership of county officials and supportive community members, solar power facilities would not be possible. With gratitude, we want to recognize the farmers, landowners, and residents of Levy County for their support and ambition to secure a bright future for their community through an economic contributor like Levy Solar I Project.
