bp Brings Green Energy, Jobs to Ohio with Construction of New Utility-Scale Solar Project

By partnering with Meta under a power-purchase agreement (PPA), bp is addressing greenhouse gas emissions and promoting the development of renewable energy in the US. When finished, Arche will produce enough clean energy per year to power more than 20,000 US households.

bp America chairman and president Dave Lawler said: “This agreement shows how companies can create jobs, invest in the US economy, and at the same time support net zero ambitions and help the world reduce carbon emissions. It’s another example of bp partnering to accelerate change and becoming an integrated energy company – one that can help corporations, countries and cities decarbonize.”

Global solar powerhouse Lightsource bp, bp’s 50:50 joint-venture partner, created the project on the company’s behalf and is overseeing development.

Urvi Parekh, head of renewable energy at Meta, added: “We appreciate bp’s partnership in helping keep our commitment to supporting our global operations with 100% renewable energy. In addition to adding new energy to the grid, we are proud that this project will bring additional jobs and investment to Ohio.”

The project will involve the installation of ultra-low carbon solar panels and intelligent solar trackers from US-based producers First Solar and Nextracker, respectively. McCarthy Building Companies’ Renewable Energy & Storage team has been chosen as the project’s primary contractor.

The project is part of bp’s plans to develop 20GW of net renewable generating capacity by 2025 and 50GW by 2030.
