Harvesting the Sun to Power an Economic Boon to Gorham Township and Fulton County

ConnectGen is developing a utility-scale solar project in Gorham Township, Fulton County, Ohio and expects to install up to 200 megawatts (MW) of solar energy in the area, which has the potential to power more than 45,000 homes in Ohio annually. The Fulton County Solar Project (Fulton Solar) is working towards filing an application with the Ohio Power Siting Board, with a target commercial operation date of 2025.

Connecting Power, Projects & People

The Fulton County Solar Project will Provide Long-Term Benefits to Gorham Township and Fulton County

Providing tens of millions of dollars in tax revenues over the life of the Project, which can be used for road upgrades, schools, public safety, and other critically important infrastructure services to Gorham Township, Fulton County, the Fayette Local School District, the Gorham-Fayette Fire Department, and other local organizations.

Creating up to 200 family-wage construction jobs directly during construction with even more during peak construction times, 80% of which will be sourced from the State of Ohio.

Paying tens of millions of dollars to local landowners over the life of the Project through annual lease payments, easement agreements, and good neighbor agreements, resulting in a consistent stream of revenue that can protect against fluctuating commodity prices and help maintain family farms.

Enhancing local economic impact by sourcing Ohio-based equipment, materials, and labor when feasible in all phases – development, construction, and operations.

Implementing best-in-class pollinator-friendly vegetation, which will enhance soil health, ecological diversity, and hydrological cycles while providing critical pollinating services for nearby farms.

Being an active participant in the local community by developing meaningful relationships that translate into long-term partnerships with local organizations, schools, and community members.

ConnectGen expects to use approximately 1800 acres to host project infrastructure, and the project will be wholly located within the boundaries of Gorham Township.

ConnectGen is Committed to Siting the Fulton County Solar Project Responsibly and Safely

Below are the ways in which we will minimize potential environmental impacts of the project.


Develop a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan that outlines plans for sediment and erosion controls to manage any stormwater discharged from the project site


Work with state and federal agencies and stakeholders to ensure that potential environmental impacts are fully considered, minimized, and mitigated


Conduct a noise impact assessment to develop mitigation recommendations to ensure that the project meets applicable sound limits


Conduct a visual impact analysis to assure that potential visual impacts from the project are minimized through a variety of screening practices


Implement financial securities that will guarantee responsible decommissioning and restoration at the end of the project’s life
