Organizations and companies in Athens County strive to foster an environment of collaboration and partnership in the pursuit of a common goal–a thriving and healthy community. Athens County company, Third Sun Solar has donated solar panels to power the Bailey’s Trailhead in the Village of Chauncey.

A roof-mounted solar array has been donated by Ohio’s Third Sun Solar to be placed at the Chauncey-Dover Community Park trailhead of the Baileys Trail System project this winter.

The company partnered with the Village of Chauncey and the Baileys Trail System to provide clean energy to the trailhead. The solar system will be installed on the rooftop of the restroom facility and is set to begin next January. The addition of a solar array to the restroom facility will reduce the Village’s utility costs for the next two decades or more.
