Local Solar Power Collaboration

Lightsource BP and Penn State are partnering to bring large-scale, off-site solar power generation to Franklin County.

Have you heard that Penn State has partnered with Lightsource BP to develop a utility-scale solar photovoltaic array in Franklin County? Are you interested in learning more details about the project and how you as a Penn Stater can engage with the project? Please come to our Open House event where Lightsource BP will describe the projects and be available to answer your questions. We'll also ask for your ideas on additional environmental benefits we could house on the project lands, and on how Penn State research and teaching can benefit from the projects!

Open House Agenda

Join us at Penn State Mont Alto!  We'll gather in the General Studies Building Auditorium (Room 105) from Noon - 1 p.m.  There will be additional special-topic breakout tables set up to allow you to investigate specific topics further.

  • Welcome: Introduction by the Mont Alto Chancellor

  • Question and Answer session for audience and all speakers
