About The Project
Invenergy began development of the Hashknife Solar Energy Center with the goal to begin construction in 2023.
Currently, our efforts are largely focused on securing permits for
the project, conducting all of our necessary studies to ensure we site
our project facilities in the most appropriate and responsible
locations, and bringing the project to market through securing a
During the life of the project, Hashknife Solar Energy Center is projected to pay millions of dollars in property taxes, lease payments to landowners, salaries to employees, and payments for local goods and services, resulting in a significant increase in economic activity in the Navajo county area. Local schools and county infrastructure will benefit from the increase in tax revenue.
The Hashknife Energy Center is an unparalleled development
opportunity for Navajo County, with millions to be invested in the local
economy over the life of the project. We selected Navajo County for
this project after intense and careful evaluation due to the:
• Verified, strong solar resource
• Existing transmission lines limiting the need for new infrastructure
• Expansive ranchland and landowners who are excited to participate in the project
• Geography well-suited to solar construction
• Proximity to state highways and I-40
We are committed to our local host communities and look forward to continuing to work closely with Navajo County, contributing to the area's economic development, and to providing an additional supply of clean, sustainable energy in Arizona.
To avoid and minimize impacts to wildlife and other natural resources, Invenergy's in-house Environmental Compliance team works with state and federal agencies and other interested stakeholders to site, build, and operate our facilities responsibly.
All County roads and infrastructure will be left in the same or better condition than they were prior to their use for the construction.
