Geronimo’s Impact on the Local Community

Geronimo projects contribute significantly to the local communities they serve via funding for tax revenue, landowner payments, local spending, charitable donations and job creation. This economic impact represents real money that is being pumped directly back into the communities we serve and can be absolutely life-changing for our host communities. In many ways, our renewable energy projects can be classified as an extraordinary seed crop for our landowners and farmers.
