Competitive Power Ventures’ (CPV) affiliate CPV Renewable Power has brought the 100-megawatt (MW) Maple Hill Solar farm online in Pennsylvania, the company said Dec. 18.

Located in Portage Township on a former coal mine site, the solar farm—constructed by Gemma Power Systems—features bi-facial solar panels and single-axis tracking. It is expected to generate about 185,000 megawatt-hours of clean electricity annually, avoiding nearly 100,000 tons of CO2 emissions—equivalent to removing about 20,000 cars from the road—each year, CPV said in the release.

“Completion of the CPV Maple Hill Solar project is a tremendous milestone for our company as we continue our efforts to help lead the energy transition by bringing new low or zero carbon resources online,” said Sean Finnerty, executive vice president of renewable power for CPV.

Maple Hill is one of three utility-scale solar projects constructed in 2023 for CPV. It joins the company’s five operating wind projects with a combined capacity of 762 MW.
