Constructing one of the largest solar projects in Ohio, AMP continues its role as a regional leader in developing and deploying renewable generation.

Napoleon Solar Facility

Working in partnership with its member communities, AMP developed and owns the Napoleon Solar Facility, a 3.54 MW (AC) solar project located in Napoleon, Ohio. The facility is connected to the City of Napoleon’s electric system, providing transmission savings. The site produced its first megawatt-hours of sunshine-driven power in August 2012.
