Gem City Solar is a 49.9 MW solar park that will be built on roughly 300 acres of private land in Montgomery County, Ohio.
Gem City Solar is a community partner, bringing aﬀordable clean energy while at the same time helping to fund education, government projects, and the infrastructure to build a community that locals love living in.
In addition to supplying power for Montgomery County and beyond to help meet climate goals, Gem City Solar will contribute an estimated $12.25 million dollars in additional property tax revenue over the anticipated 35-year life of the project. These funds will go toward essential community functions, such as ~$7 million dollars that will directly beneﬁt the Trotwood-Madison City School District, as well as $3.5 million dollars to beneﬁt Montgomery County and City of Dayton projects.
Montgomery County deserves a chance for a cleaner, healthier environment. Beyond the sustainability of the environment, Gem City Solar aims to partner with the community in many ways, including beneﬁting current and future generations of Montgomery County who will attend public schools infused with money generated by the sun.
It’s a forward-thinking way of capturing already existing resources and distributing them to every community member in the form of better infrastructure and greater access to better-funded community resources like libraries, the ﬁre department, the parks, the Miami Valley Career Tech Center and Sinclair Community College.
For anyone who’s ever dreamed there’s a better life out there that’s just within your grasp, we’re here to tell you that yes, we believe in you. Yes, we can achieve that together, as a community built better through the power of solar.
