Tyler Fehrman, with Apex Clean Energy, attended the Feb. 22 Pleasant Township board meeting to bring a few updates to the community.
Springwater Solar will be holding a public information meeting on March 9 from 6 to 8 p.m at London City Hall, 20 S. Walnut St. in London. Springwater Solar has sent out mailers about this meeting to the residents of Pleasant Township. The meeting will be held with an open house model. There will not be a formal presentation, but rather team members from every aspect of the Springwater Solar Project will be available to answer questions from the public.
A presentation about the project will be posted at springwatersolar.com following the public meeting so individuals can view the information at their convenience.
Fehrman said they want to connect with the community and share details about the project. Springwater Solar has signed agreements with enough people in the area to move forward with this project.
Apex Clean Energy is also implementing its community grant program. This program is to support educators, entrepreneurs and change makers in Madison and Franklin counties. They are asking people to apply if they represent a group or organization which meets one of their four key categories for funding. The categories are for a group that builds a healthy community, creates economic development, creates environmental sustainability or promotes education.
An application for this grant can be submitted online at springwatersolar.com.
