APV strives to be a good and responsible neighbor in communities where it does business. The company cultivates long-term, mutually beneficial relationships with local civic leaders and residents built on respect, value and trust. Those bonds are formed during the planning and development process for its power projects and continue throughout the life of the plants. APV depends on these good working relationships and open dialogue with local leaders to help maximize the benefits to the community while also ensuring its plants remain competitive businesses and stable employers. APV has and is establishing these relationships in Greene and Fayette Counties. The company continues to communicate with local elected officials, local civic leaders, neighbors and other community groups.
Construction of the Project will boost the local economy, with a construction cost of more than $600 million and provide property tax revenue to local units of government. APV is expected to create about 800 peak construction jobs and up to 25 well-paying, full-time jobs during operation. APV is committed to local hiring where possible and works with contractors who help fulfill this commitment.
