RAI Energy International, Inc., a global renewable energy development company, announced last week that it has acquired ownership interest in a 70-megawatt solar farm with Hamilton Energy Resource Opportunities LLC. This investment is significant for Hamilton County in both short-term with construction and build-out jobs and long-term with increased tax revenue to the county. According to the Florida Chamber Foundation, the state’s population expected to increase by six million by 2030 and having advanced solar and other green technologies positions Hamilton County to be a more competitive community in the future.

The Hamilton County Development Authority looks forward to seeing this projected to completion and the impact that it will have on our local economy.
