Hearing on solar farm is next week

A hearing for a proposed solar farm, originally scheduled for Aug. 23, will be held next week on Tuesday, Sept. 13.

Back in February of this year, Sol Systems, LLC and Tenaska announced that they were developing a 150-megawatt solar project on approximately 1,200 acres near Tilden in Randolph County. At that time, they also announced they were opening a project office in Tilden to provide the public with access to information on the project.

The release anticipated construction to begin in 2023 and operation to start in 2024.
