We are excited to be working in partnership with local officials and landowners to bring a clean, homegrown solar electricity generator to the Parish. The project will comply with Washington Parish's solar ordinance to bring new investment and tax revenue to the Parish while protecting the community's interests. The project's output will equal the electricity used by approximately 34,000 Louisiana households.
Bogalusa West PV I, LLC is proposing a 200 megawatt (MW) solar energy facility in Washington Parish, Louisiana.
The project is under development by Savion, a Shell Group portfolio company, one of the largest, most technologically advanced utility-scale solar and energy storage project development companies in the United States.
Bogalusa West Solar Project Facts
Solar Project Benefits
Utility-scale solar is increasing across the U.S. because it is low cost, safe, operates almost silently, and exists in harmony with agriculture, wildlife and the environment. The more solar power generated in Washington Parish means there is less dependence on out-of-state electricity generation.
In the bigger picture, solar energy projects provide an abundant, earth-friendly, sustainable power resource to help stabilize electricity costs. These amazing systems lessen carbon emissions and contribute to the diversification of the nation’s electricity grid.
Closer to home, solar energy facilities produce direct positive economic impacts by increasing the local tax base and creating stable revenue to fund the schools and other local tax jurisdictions. Host communities typically experience economic boosts for local businesses and the opportunities for new jobs–primarily during the construction phase.
