U.S. Senator Announces Major Clean Energy Investment in Pennsylvania

U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) announced that the U.S. Department of Energy has conditionally committed a $398.6 million loan to Eos Energy Enterprises for their Project AMAZE in Turtle Creek, Pennsylvania. This funding aims to support the construction of next-generation American-made battery systems.

The project is expected to create 50 union jobs during construction and as many as 650 operational jobs at full capacity. The Inflation Reduction Act, which Senator Casey fought for, enabled tax credits for advanced manufacturing investments in clean energy sectors, and a ‘domestic content’ tax credit for companies using American-made materials. Eos Energy plans to use these credits to scale up production of Eos Z3™ zinc-bromine batteries with a goal to transition to 100% U.S.-sourced materials by 2026.

Who We Are

The Franklin County Free Press, established by Vicky Taylor in 2019, emerged as a beacon of local journalism for the residents of Franklin County. Under Vicky's leadership, it quickly became an essential source of news, particularly at a time when major newspaper publications were increasingly overlooking local coverage.

On January 1, 2022, the torch was passed to Nathan Neil and his firm, Neil Publishing, LLC. Neil, a local entrepreneur with multiple thriving businesses in Chambersburg, shares Vicky's fervent commitment to both the community and the world of local journalism.

Rooted in the heart of Franklin County and powered by its residents, the Franklin County Free Press continues to bridge the gap, ensuring that the local stories, events, and issues that matter most to the community remain in the spotlight.
