HARRISBURG (March 16, 2018) – State Senator Andy Dinniman announced that four solar energy projects in Chester County will receive more than $1 million in total state funding.

“These investments can go a long way in encouraging businesses to transition to solar energy,” Dinniman, who serves on the Senate Environmental Resources and Energy Committee, said. “They not only cut pollutants and energy costs; they support a competitive business environment, attract entrepreneurs and jobs, and help ensure that Pennsylvania will be a leader in the clean energy marketplace.”

The funds, which come through the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection’s Solar Energy Grant Funding Program, were approved today by the Commonwealth Finance Authority. They are as follows:
