Three Corners Solar is a utility-scale solar project located in Benton, Clinton, and Unity Township in Kennebec County, Maine, that has received full notice to proceed and began construction in November 2022. At 152MWdc and located in the heart of Central Maine Power’s transmission system, the project will produce enough power for 30,000 Maine homes and will displace the dirtiest and most expensive generation. This $200 million investment offers economic, environmental, and community benefits, including ~$8 million in new property taxes for host communities and the State of Maine. The project has committed to a number of community contributions, including an agreement with Unity College to provide $100,000 for internships and research, a $25,000 donation to Sebasticook Regional Land Trust to support their land conservation and stewardship projects, and $100,000 to support local scholarship programs and charitable organizations. Additionally, the project has agreements in place to conserve approximately ~1,875 acres of predominately forested lands.
The Longroad team has a proven track record of developing, financing, constructing, and operating wind and solar projects in Maine. To date the Longroad team has successfully developed 702 MW in Maine, more than any other developer in the State. In addition to Three Corners Solar, the Longroad Team has a portfolio of distributed generation solar projects under construction across Maine in Augusta, Baldwin, Monmouth, and Harmony totaling 26 MWdc and contracted with Bath Iron Works and Walmart.
