February 10 (Renewables Now) - US power developer and asset manager Competitive Power Ventures Inc (CPV) will build the 150-MW Maple Hill solar plant in Cambria County, Pennsylvania.

The company said Monday that the construction at an already cleared site in Portage and Summerhill townships could start at the end of 2020, adding that the project will require 150 to 200 workers at peak building time.

Once in operation, the Maple Hill solar park will displace emissions of over 150,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) per year.

Recently, CPV executive Tom Rumsey told the Washington Examiner that the company has plans for “several hundred” megawatts of wind and solar in the coming months.
