Painesville considers $80 million grant request to build a solar power plant

Painesville City Council is considering an agreement for a regional grant request that could provide over $80 million to build a solar power facility and shut down its coal-burning power plant. This project, in partnership with Cleveland and Cuyahoga County, aims to secure $129 million from the EPA’s Climate Pollution Reduction Grant program.

If awarded, this grant will significantly reduce expenditure and fully fund the solar plant and battery storage. This is a fantastic step toward a sustainable future and cleaner energy for our community. Read about the additional details in this News-Herald article.
