PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The Pennsylvania Turnpike is charging ahead with its plans on jumping into solar energy production.
According to a report from our news partners at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the agency is awaiting an occupancy permit to open a solar field at a maintenance facility near Jeannette.
It will be the first of a series of solar facilities planned across the state, including in New Stanton and Penn Township.
The long-term goal is to use solar-generated power to electrify portions of the toll road so electric vehicles can charge as they travel.
