The Bull Run Solar project is being developed by Invenergy's six-person New York development team located in central New York, with support from engineers, construction managers and other professionals at Invenergy's headquarters in Chicago, Illinois. Jon LaBarre, an area local, is the dedicated Project Developer for Bull Run Solar and is supported by Katy Warner, the team's Administrative Assistant, Renewable Development. Jon is frequently available in and around the project area, while Katy is based out of the Invenergy Western NY regional office.
Bull Run Solar is an opportunity to boost the local economy of Clinton County and create jobs, all while generating clean, domestic energy.
Invenergy is developing the project on private land it is leasing in the towns of Clinton, Ellenburg, and Mooers. This is a stand-alone project separate from the Bull Run Wind facility Invenergy is also developing in the same area. The project's benefits to the environment and the local community make it a fantastic opportunity for the host communities in Clinton County.

Solar power is the new cash crop for farmers and landowners. Lease payments provide a steady stream of income. Bull Run Solar will pay out between $13 and $26 million in landowner payments over the first 20 years of the project.
Invenergy plans to hire a project manager and several technicians to perform routine maintenance on the solar facility. These will be permanent positions will based at a new O&M Building to be built by Invenergy in the project area. Interviews will begin after the start of project construction.
