The Goldfinch Solar Project is an up to 250 megawatt (MW) solar development located in Mason County, Kentucky. Goldfinch would span approximately 2,000 acres and will be connected to the North Clark County-Hugh L Spurlock 345 kV Line. The project is anticipated to positively impact the environment, as well as the local economy by producing tax revenue, jobs, and contributions through a charitable fund. Goldfinch is estimated to offset approximately 379,000* metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions annually during operations – the equivalent of taking an estimated 82,000* cars off the road every year.
Goldfinch Solar will provide energy and capacity for the transmission network. Goldfinch will likely provide a cost effective alternative to fossil fuels. Goldfinch’s project footprint will consist of approximately 2,000 acres signed under agreement and has ideal conditions for solar energy generation.
