U.S. Rep. Matt Cartwright (D-Moosic) announced EC had received $21,000 from
the Appalachian Regional Commission to conduct a solar feasibility study on its remaining lands.  These properties, many unsuitable for traditional development, present an excellent opportunity for strengthening local energy infrastructure and supporting skilled jobs.  The study will screen approximately 6,000 acres and rank their suitability for photovoltaic arrays. Those that meet the selected criteria will have great potential for reuse – turning “brownfields into brightfields,”as they
like to say.
