Project Information

Blacks Creek Energy Center, LLC is pleased to introduce a proposed 400 MW solar generation facility in Ada County, Idaho. This facility can deliver many positive benefits to the local community.

The solar project is both an economic development opportunity for greater Ada County and a significant revenue development opportunity for the local tax jurisdictions that deliver key services to residents. 

The project will also benefit regional electricity consumers and the environment by generating clean, low-cost renewable energy and providing vital backup power that increases electric grid resilience and reduces outages.

Benefits of Solar Energy

A solar project provides a healthy, productive economic development opportunity for local landowners to harvest a stable cash crop–the sun. Benefits include positive impacts on the local economy through tax revenues to local governments and support to other local services. Host communities typically experience economic boosts for local businesses and supply chains and opportunities for new jobs–primarily during the construction phase.  

 

In addition to being safe and compatible with agricultural and rural residential uses, solar energy facilities exist in harmony with wildlife and the environment. They make good neighbors because they operate almost silently without producing odor or byproducts; or attracting additional traffic.

 

In the bigger picture, solar energy projects provide an abundant, earth-friendly, sustainable power resource to help stabilize electricity costs. These amazing systems lessen carbon emissions and contribute to diversifying the nation’s electricity grid.
