Philadelphia is set to make significant progress toward its goal of powering all city-owned buildings with renewable energy by 2030, with the launch of an 80-megawatt solar field in Adams County. The solar project, initiated by Mayor Jim Kenney in 2018, will provide 70 megawatts of renewable energy, covering 23-25% of the city's electricity needs. The project, delayed due to the pandemic, secured a favorable power purchase agreement, locking in rates at $44.50 per megawatt. The city aims to achieve 100% renewable energy by 2030 and is planning additional solar projects to meet its ambitious goal.
