Distributed Energy in Ohio

In October 2021, House Bill No. 450 was introduced to enable the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio to certify 1,000 megawatts of community solar projects throughout the state, and an additional 250 megawatts to be constructed in distressed areas. If passed, these projects will be allocated among all investor-owned utilities. For reference, one megawatt of solar energy occupies roughly six acres of land and can power almost 200 American homes. 

In addition to this legislative action to enable community solar, Ohio commercial and industrial customers are increasing their demand for renewable energy, creating a great opportunity for Ohio landowners. Apex Clean Energy is seeking landowners interested in leasing their land for community solar projects and for larger transmission-connected solar projects.


Are you a landowner in Ohio?

You may be able to sign up for solar energy on your land.

  1. Let us know you're interested here.
  2. If your parcel is 40 acres or more, we'll investigate your property to ensure it is a suitable site for distributed solar. If your parcel is less than 40 acres, it might be too small to be eligible, but we're happy to hold onto your information in case there are new opportunities in the future.
  3. If your land is eligible, we will prepare a lease agreement for you to review.
  4. Once you've signed, we do the rest—from developing the site, to getting permits, to building the project, to selling the power that's produced.

The best part? You get paid the whole time.
