Flat Run Solar Project

The Flat Run Solar project is located in Taylor County, Kentucky. The 55 MW project will sit on 450 acres of land and, in addition to providing clean, renewable energy, the project will have a positive economic impact in the local area, namely through local construction jobs and purchases of local goods and services.

ENGIE is committed to being the best local business and neighbor that we can be in the county. Construction will begin Q1 2023 and will become operational by Q4 2024.
