Monroe county considering solar farm project

BLOOMINGTON -A southern Indiana county is weighing a company's proposal to build a five-megawatt solar energy farm on county-owned land.

Solar Zentrum has proposed using 15 to 20 acres in Monroe County for the project. That land is a part of an 85-acre plot owned by the county.

The company is seeking a site that could house between 4,000 and 5,000 solar photovoltaic panels that would turn sunlight into electricity.

The Herald-Times reports that Duke Energy has issued a request for proposals for solar farms that would gather the energy and then sell it to Duke. See http://wp.me/p37Lx8-1AD 

The county property in question is near a power transfer station, making it an ideal site.

Monroe County's commissioners and members of the county's environmental quality commission have agreed to move the idea forward.
